Hi everyone. I am 29 years old and was diagnosed with AS two weeks ago. It all started about 6 years ago, after the birth of my daughter, my ribs were sore and tender to the touch, which made it hard to sleep without pain. Then came what I thought was sciatica, but now feels more like a deep pain in my right buttock, which makes it hard to move my right leg. Next came IBS, severe at times, and now I have ribs that are so painful (and sublaxed in some areas) that sneezing terrifies me. My Rheumatologist did some blood work and it came back HLAB27 positive, and an MRI which showed problems in my right SI joint. Can anyone tell me what I should expect next? Is it going to keep progressing (I have no pain in my spine...yet) or will it stay contained to these areas that already bother me? I'm desperate for answers, and my Rhreumatologist just kinda blew me off, and told me the disease wasn't all that bad...but he's not the one living with it!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
