So sorry to hear about your condition and how much pain it has caused you.

I have a good friend who was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis several years ago. He is now in his mid 30s. He is very active and fit and was very much in the same boat as you (feeling constant pain and being pushed to use stronger and stronger drugs). While he is still in pain, he found that changing his diet had a massive impact on his well-being and overall level of pain.

His key was to remove starch from his diet. He did explain the rationale behind it once, but I don’t know the details. It made such a difference in his ability to continue with sports and physical activities that it may be worth trying for you.

Have you tried any changes to your diet or lifestyle to help combat the symptoms?

Hope you find what helps you get through the day! Sending love from Canada.
