Ankylosing Spondylitis

Hi All,
My name is nitin, I am from Gurgaon and wanted to take your advice on my wife's case. She has been diagnosed with Anklyosing spondylitis, she is HLA b27 positive but shows no structural changes in spine or neck. we are taking the treatment from a rheumatologist at Indian Spine and Injury centre Vasant Kunj.

It was 2010 when she was first observed acute pain in back (lower) and knee, on taking some test the infection was found in her knee and ESR was also high. She was advised to take remicade, which she eventually took in June 2010. Post that she did not had any kind of pain or issue until she got married in April 2012.

It was though fine till oct 2012, but in October she developed a pain in her ankle, initially we were consulting some orthopedic and took treatment for plantar fasciitis, but with continuous exercise and medication the pain was not subsidizing, moreover it started in the left ankle also. In December we met Dr. again and he recommended to take remicade again, since we did not had any insurance cover and also the ESR that time was around 45 he suggested we can take Solu Medrol through Intravenous (IV). Even after taking the treatment the ESR did not came down and in March the condition was so bad that we had to take remicade again in March 2013 that time ES reached to 120.

Just after 1 week of taking Remicade she got allergy from colours and had to be admitted again in march, this time she was given solu Medrol again but only 2 as compared to 3 dose last time, the ESR at that time was 45. Its been almost 2 months now and from last 2 weeks she is taking following medicines:
medrol 16 mg folitrax 7.5 mg with once a week
Medrol 8 mg with folvite tab daily once
Sazz DS twice a day
nucoxia P twice a day
Supracal daily once

In last 2 weeks the ESR is constantly on 65( tested twice). the latest test (on 21st May shows ESR as 80) She is on a strong medication and still there is no improvement in her condition. Please suggest if any one can help us.
