I have just received my diagnosis of AS from Orthopaedics via a MRI. As yet I haven’t seen a Rheumatologist (still waiting). As you can imagine I’m shocked and wondering if there is anything I can do to get out in front of this thing in the meantime. Any suggestions gratefully received.

WELCOME, PhilD50

The most important thing to understand about AS is that PAIN is like the warning light in your car; best not to ignore it (pain killers) for too long! Some of the drugs can be very effective at keeping us unaware of the damage being caused by inflammation. But if NSAIDs (for example) decrease the inflammation by 40%, does this mean that it will take 40% longer for permanent damage from fusion to occur? The DRUGS do not TREAT the CAUSE of AS!

You are in the right place to discover the cause and although the diet is a bit extreme, the POINT of the diet is not to be Draconian, but puts YOU in control of Your own HEALTH: YOU make the decisions and hopefully will understand the consequences. Many people achieve remission through diet and are comfortable bouncing between dieting and can withstand the occasional break from it. It all depends upon from where a person begins. My personal journey was that I relied too heavily on NSAIDs and paid a terrible price for this because they accelerated my AS. Once I learned of the diet I knew it was correct because I had so much experience fasting to eliminate flares: Once you do this, the connection between FOOD and AS is inescapably OBVIOUS.

Thank You for joining the group and I look forward to hearing from You on this shared journey
HEALTH,
John
