I’m a 28y/o female and I was diagnosed with AS a few months ago. I have been suffering with hip pain for about 10 years. I also started suffering pain in between my shoulders and neck over the past 12 months. My hip pain has increased so much in that time that I have lost about 50%of the flexibility in both hips and they are constantly stiff. The shoulder/neck issue has increased to points where I can’t breathe from the pain and need to go to emergency for an anti-inflammatory injection as Indocin doesn’t do the trick by that stage.
I am booked in to see a specialist to go on long term medication, however I am interested to know how females have coped while pregnant? I would like to start a family in a few years but am terrified I will be unable to do the most basic tasks as I am already struggling quite severely with chronic fatigue, depressed/low mood due to constant pain and quite regular flare ups. I know that most medications can’t be taken while pregnant.
