Hi - first post here, currently being investigated for AS. 42-yr-old male, B27 negative and bloods normal. Lower back pain last few months, particularly in morning.
However this has progressed to thoracic pain which is when I went to the GP. Felt like I'd worked out every morning. This has continued and now lasts for most of the day, doesn't seem to "get better with exercise" as is often said (although I wonder how this is defined).
Then in last few days my right groin is clicking and popping hugely and my neck has started to display signs of crepitus...the crunching sound.
My question really is is this a normal timespan for the progression of AS, and since I still haven't been diagnosed what else could it be? It just seems like - if it is - it's moving at quite a pace. I'm taking Ibuprofen every other day but want to hold off as long as possible.
Thanks in advance.
