I was hoping someone out there could help me. My symptoms are nerve pain, nerve damage, itch like sensation, sharp shooting pains, involuntary movement, night sweats, positive ana results, mouth rips, sensitivity to cold, pain behind eyes, skin down my leg and on the side of my face gets extremely sensitive sometimes, my bowel movemets are extremely small and I have to put presure on my abdomen to have a bowel movement. I have arthritis in my spine. I have been in 3 accidents. Since I have a positive ana doctors don't know if it is accident related or autoimmune related. Any opinions would be welcome.

  • Your symptoms are very close to that of my wife, she was diagnosed with a rare spinal disorder called Ankylosing Spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis is a type of arthritis of the spine. This can be checked for in blood work that includes a test for HLA-B27. As for the bowel problems, she also had difficulties, she was able to get relief from a product called Fiberwise. For more info send me an email to maxm4usa@sbcglobal.net.
