I have taken anxiety meds and cut down on coffee which helped nothing I have one an MRI for my head and seen an ophthalmologist who is stumped by the sensation in my eye and no orthopedic doctor will see me because they Don t think that can help, I am being sent to a Rhumatologist but that s a month away. I think I may have Ankylosing Spondyitis but I can t get into any doctor right now to get a test for it. Does anyone have anything they can tell me that may be of use or even conformation of my theory? I am starting to feel like a lost cause.
