Help with Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)My husband is 25yrs old and was diagnosed with AS at 16. We were told their is no cure only drugs that slow down the process. I have had great sucess with homeopathy on myself and children and was wondering if there is anything to help?
He wakes up approx. 5 days a week very stiff and takes naproxin to relieve the pain.
He is allergic to Sulfer.
Please let me know what other information you may need.
Thank you very much.
