Anyone have breathing issues with AS? I've got worsenning breathing over the last few months. The chest x-rays show partial eventration of the right hemi-diapgram. In other words the diaphram is collapsing my lung(s). Reading up on this it says that this can be caused by damagae to the Phrenic nerve. They are still investigating other possibilities, e.g. Cancer, but the ultra sound seemed OK, still have to get an MRI and GI inspection (WooHoo).
A couple of docs have mentioned the AS as a possibility, but they are just guessing. From what I have read about this it is caused by issues with the cervical vertebrae. But the last visit to the Rheumy showed that my neck was still clear.
Anyone have expereience with this?
