That is how I remember some of those days 50 years ago!
It certainly becomes an individual thing.
Keep reading. Stay alert and keep as strong as possible.

Tell us about yourself and how it is with you!

I am 34 now, but from what I can remember from my personal experience. Even before the hip pain, there is fatigue. Sleeping for days on end. Also one major thing I noticed was that when I would take large gulps of water my chest would hurt. Once the back pain started, the pain was localized to a area in my lower back then it would spread to my upper back and legs.

I'm not sure. I was diagnosed once with AS, then second time a different rheumatologist told me that I don't have AS.

No hip pain I just have lower back pain, and the diet don't work for me, at first I thought it did, but I have been eating starch, carbs for the last 6 months without any pain.

I started having pain recently again, but just the lower back and it's only on one spot. I have herniated disks, I wonder if that is the culprit of my back pain and not AS ?
