I have painful, tender sacroiliac joints - as well as trochanteric bursitis - which means I have pain all around my pelvis and down my legs to my knees. In the morning my lower back is very stiff and I'm unable to put socks on when sitting on the edge of the bed. The pain can wake me up in the night and I'm always in pain in the morning. The pain is like a pelvic girdle which really gets me down and I feel very tired and a bit down.
I'm 70 and have read that ankylosing spondylitis is seen in younger people. Can it affect older people, too? Has anyone been diagnosed with it in their later years?
