    I'm on etanercept and it sometimes doesn't work. Have you tried tramadol to give you some release from the pain? And magnesium flakes in a hot back to relax your muscles before bed? Heat patches are good to leave on at night too.hope you manage to get some relief, it's awful when the AS is so bad you can't sleep. If you do take tramadol, just be careful how often you take them, all too easy for your body to become dependent on them, but if used very sparingly they can give you a night of good sleep which can help your biologic injection to work. Good luck

      I have been taking them for a few years now and I agree they are very helpful..... Just be careful of side effects like itching of the skin ...
