... Sacroileitis can occur in a few autoimmune spondyloarthropathies, not just AS. I have SI joint disease, and have lupus and RA. It was the very first symptom of my lupus course, as the RA developed 20+ years later. All the rheums will say SI disease is not part of lupus, but I really question that. Mine always flares up when I have a lupus flare. It can be part of reactive... (3 replies)
... I have sacroiliitis, not AS, but rather, one of the other flavors of spondyloarthropathy....Psoriatic Arthritis. Rheumy should sort it all out, but they are largely treated all the same way. And similar to RA, also. I take MTX and Humira, along with Mobic. It takes all of that, plus pain mgmt, to help. If you have had a good response to a trial of steroids (like a Medrol... (3 replies)

... Hi, Linda: Osteophytes are highly characteristic of AS, and X-ray "changes" here indicates some spondylitis/spondylosis. SIJ changes do not always happen in the early stages of AS in women, but I would try and image this using conventional X-rays while doing the HLA B27 test. Certainly, the changes could be due to other diseases and if you have Sacroiliitis,... (9 replies)
