I am hoping someone can help me who would be the best person to diagnose AS. I am 46 years old I have suffered with chronic back pain for years and have just been told its Arthritis. My pain is really severe at night across my lower back and hips. I am also suffereing with neck pain and recently shoulder pain. My doctor has never referred me and has given me a combination of Solpadol 30mg/500mg Amitriptyline 20mg which i take at night to help sleep but still wake the second half of the night in pain. On waking i am like a stiff old lady. I have suffered for years but feel it is progressively getting worse... My doctor ocassionally gives me injections in my neck to help when it affects my shoulder...
I am really begining to think it is As and not just arthritis i cant stand for long periods of time as well now and obviously this is really affecting my work as I am a hairdresser. Can anyone tell me if it sounds like AS and who is the best person to see and would i benefit from seeing a chiropractor? Thankyou
