hi mate, ill try and answer your question and then ask you some of my own, please feel free to reply via PM if you dont wish to answer them in a public forum.
First, your question;
I currently have a friend who is suffering from bi-lateral sacroilitis (inflammation of the SIJ’s)it is supposed at this point by the medical team he has been treated by, that the condition is Ankylosing Spondylitis, however a recent appointment with a prominent specialist has cast a big shadow of doubt on this.
A series of MRI scans revealed the inflammation of the SIJ’s and also several bowel loops. For interest, his family has a history of bowel problems such as IBS, ulcerative collitus, Krohns etc and he has also tested positive for the hbla-27 gene.
Back to topic anyway, he has a relatively broad experience of Steroids and has found that he can tolerate no more than 7days of oral steroids before the inflammation becomes to excessive and painful, though the pain is transferred to his glutes and occasionally sciatic-nerve. As of this moment, investigations of the bowel, intestines etc have not been made as he is not willing to have examinations involving his asshole lol.
So i am not definitlty saying that oral steroid use will cause you problems but ask you to edge on the cautious side, especially if you are still the proud wearer of a collostomy bag, or have not fully healed from the surgery.
Hope this helps.
Now for my questions if thats okay as none of the guys friends or family are able to convince him to just bite his tongue and take a camera up the ass.
did you suffer from any pain in the glute or hip area whilst your condition was flared up?
how was your diagnosis made? i.e - MRI’s, examinations, barium enemas etc?
Have you found any dietary alterations which eased your symptoms?
4)Any ideas (unlikely i know) what caused your condition to come on at your youthful age?
As i said, anything you are not cool with answering, please pm me, or of course if you dont want to answer totally understandable.
Thanks in advance, Testanabol.
