Wow Craig- that is an eye opening article, it really gives me a new look at the healthcare muddle. I have to admit my preception was that doctors had become greedy and on the payroll of the pharm companies. Something new to think about-

Dizzit- have your sons been dx'ed? I worry about this also- my brother has many of the symtoms, I told him to get insured before he goes to a rhuemy, just in case he has AS. I also wonder if some doctors are doing folks a favor by not coming right out and dxing AS ( it would be great if people could get the treatment without the dx!)Ofcourse to get insurance to pay for biologics you usually have to have a firm dx. Boggles the mind! Seems like there is no right path. Thanks for weighing in.
