May be a long story, I injured my back at 23 and about a month after I developed Iritis. Over they years my lower back and upper spine had stiffened up considerably. I am now a 58 year old male. During physicals my doctor would tell me my mobility in both my neck and lower spine was horrible, 30% of what it should be. All that said stiffness was more often than pain. Over the last 10 years however my neck becomes so stiff at times that it causes major headaches and then disappears. 5 to 6 years ago i started to get tingling or burning sensations at my pelvis that went down the back of my thighs., along with tingling in my lips of all places. The Dr said it was arthritis and at 55 that is normal. I had to have a knee xray and they told me I had arthritis on my Knee, however my knee does not really bother me. The other thing is that over the last 5 years I have had iritis 4 times, now I have a major back flare up and it resonates from my tail bone out to my hip. I used to ask my wife to massage my back but the pain has always been on the direct bone at the top of my tail bone. It was my eye doctor that said I should get checked for AS. Long winded question but two things recently my last physical showed one Kidney down to 63% and the last couple of weeks it has been uncomfortable urinating or ejaculating and doctor said I had an infection when he tested my urine in the office, and put me on Cipro, but when the lab results came back no infection. DIscomfort still there, prostate normal, however my glands are all over the place with tingling and I am drowsy at times. So we are getting tested for AS but could all these be AS related or just nerves
