Hi. I'm a 70 year old female, retired art teacher, currently making art again. I've had two back surgeries, when I was 28 and 29. My sister has had 5 (!) back operations. When I was treated for my first bout of Uviitis, my eye doctor looked at my medical history....blown thyroid, hives for 20 years, two surgeries, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis ....he sent me to have my pelvis and chest x-rayed. Those things, plus finding out my pelvis was fused, led to a diagnosis of AS. My sister was diagnosed with AS later. I've just been diagnosed with occipital neuralgia and wonder if there is a connection with AS. My scalp is so irritated and the constant throbbing is driving me crazy!
