  1. Age now 66. Had AS since late teens but only correctly diagnosed about 20 years ago
    For years variuos nsaids have assisted discomfort enabling me to be active.
    2 months ago I had a serious fall on my back from 4 ft to a concrete fall
    Since then I have basically been bed ridden with pain meds and muscle relaxants.I have gradually experienced less back pain but still cannot be away from being able to lie down within 30 to 60 mins even with pain meds.
    I do try and do some exercise but am not sure how much to do.
    Previously to the fall I had been attending a gym with a considerate of my disease trainer and that helped a lot.
    I have no insurance and really should go to a specialist but know that that could be beyond my means (not working/not earning)
    Have had xrays that according to my GP don`t show anything broken.
    Any suggestions?
