Hi my rheumatologist suspect I have spondyloarthropy due to lower back pain and elevated esr levels. Sometimes i wake up with extreme pain that i cannot move - this happened on holiday and the pain woke me up. I get general aches and pain all over my body but I usually get lower back pain that sometimes shoots down my legs.
I'm in a lot of pain after massaging a muscle knot (found when massaging back for the pain) is there any suggestions for helping spondyloarthropy? Someone on another thread said it sounds like ankylosing spondylitis.
I only had a few blood tests (for antibodies ANA DNA etc) and an ultrasound of my ankles/feet wrists/hands those came back normal except as said elevated ESR levels at 17. I had hip X-rays for hip clicks and pain which came back normal but muscle around it is weak and tight calves. I also have pes planus aka flat feet. My HLA-B27 is positive. I am 17.
