Not much cause I have ankylosing spondilitis also and I have real bad spasms that start at lower back and radiate fast up my spine hitting me in the back of my neck taking my breath. I've told the doctors and I'm not saying no more to them about this or any other problems. Its an endless fight so I now don't go to doctors because we keep going around in a circle. I don't have money for copays and a waste of my time. Same for my depression. I lost both parents almost 3yrs ago with in 2months and 1 day apart. My mom went unexpectedly first then my dad. I just don't know what to do anymore. So miserable all around!
