My son had pain since he was 11 and recently his knees starting turning inward, he was in so much pain he had to use a wheel chair for long walks and when he did walk he had a bad limp. He randomly started having grand mal seizures at 15, they were really bad. At one point he was having 15 seizures a day. He is now 16 and started taking Humira 7 months ago, he now works out and plays basketball, no more limp and so much happier and stronger, no side effects that we have noticed yet. He is also on a lot of seizure meds and doctors are trying to find a connection between the two. Has anyone ever had any seizures or know of people with AS and have seizures?

I always feel excessive joint pain and fatigue around my period. Sometimes it’s worse, other times it’s better. I’ve been using heating pads and extra strength Advil to help.

I thought our latest patient interview with Yvan, someone who's been living with AS for 15 years might be of interest to you. Here's the link if you'd like to take a look: Patient Interview - Yvan

@MeganF @Joanna07 Wow I hadn't really thought of that, but I now that I think of it I always feel worse before my period too! I always feel extra tired and stiff!
