Ankylosing spondylitis, SAAZ 1g, stiffness in the neck, HLA B27 positive

Hi, I have been diagnosed with Ankylosing spondylitis and the doctor has prescribed SAAZ 1g twice a day to start with. My condition is not bad. It is just that i have a stiffness in the neck which is persisting for couple of months now. Though I am HLA B27 positive and had pain in my Sacro illiac joint earlier but with regular walk and exercise it is fine now. I want to know whether I should start any medicine as prescribed or look for an safe alternate in the form of homoepathy.

dear one
welcome to H C M
i think the diagnosis is confirmed with the help of investigation as you sazz is drug of choice in this case.ask yours doctor to add more drugs to control the disease,as early as is always better to go for x rays of spine & bilateral s i joints.being fine with adjuvent therapy does not mean that disease is take regular medicines--under supervision of yours dr.homeopathy can make you little comfort-as it is a autoimmune disease..the .control is possible with these drugs only.
