NSAIDs. certainly don't work for everyone but they definitely work for me. In fact they work for most A.S. patients. It may take several attempts to find the one that works best for some patients. Just go to a rheumatology outpatient clinic and ask the A.S. patients there if they get any benefit from NSAIDs. I bet you the majority will tell you they do get relief from taking NSAIDs.
