Ankylosing Spondolytis and Fibro
3 Replies
Charles - August 16

I have been diagnosed with AS and my rheum doc and other docs think I may also have Fibro. All over pain, very tired and lethargic, interrupted sleep, etc. I am on cymbalta, vicodin es, and skelexa but am not getting much relief. anyone else have these sames symptoms and/or drug regimens?

Hi Charles, I'm waiting for some tests to be done on my neck, they are going to check for a form of Spondylosis, Currently I've been taking some Arthrotec for my Arthritis, but it bothers my stomach even though I take it with a complete meal. I also have Fibro, and can tell you when my neck is causing problems it makes the Fibro worse. I'm sorry I can't give you info that will help you cope, I'm not doing very well with it myself. I hope you get some relief from it. Yours in healthy living, Chris2

Hi Chris. Thanks for the reply and info. I met with my Rheum Doc today and we are switching to vicoprofen, no more skelexa, and going to try lunesta for sleep. You're right though, the AS can make things worse. My hip xrays came back a little better than my spine xrays which are horrific so the my doc believes it best for us to manage the fibro for now and monitor the AS, as well as my lupus blood indicator which is elevated. thanks again for the reply. I will say that daily stretching really helps the AS, and probably fibro.
