I'm a 34 year old female and was just diagnosed a couple weeks ago with AS. I'd gone into a chiropract. or because my back was killing me at night. He diagnose me by doing x-rays. The more research I've been doing makes me think I should go to a different doctor and have them do more X-rays and an MRI. Any advice on what doctor to call? Rheumatologist? Also nights have been horrible for me. I wake up at least 4 times a night feeling paralyzed with lower back pain. When I try to roll over to my side the pain is excruciating. When I finally make it to a different position I can fall asleep easily but within an hour or so the same thing happens again. Mornings I'm a little stiff but after about 15 minutes I feel like nothing's ever happened. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you
