Why is ankylosing spondylitis such a discoloration?

Red Net Moment News October 28 (Correspondent Wen Yanfang) Recently, Li Yuchun was a guest on a certain program. In an interview, he said that her spine has not been very good, especially last year, when it was serious, she felt that her body appeared “petrochemical” symptoms , there is no way to lie down, let alone fall asleep. So, what kind of disease is the disease that makes this energetic and powerful star talk about discoloration?

First of all, this is a rheumatism that rheumatologists often encounter. It is more common in adolescent males, and there is a certain relationship between the incidence and genes, and there is a family history. The most common symptom is low back pain. Many patients do not know that they should seek medical attention in the rheumatology department, and are often diagnosed with intervertebral disc herniation. Hip and heel pain is also a common symptom. It hurts badly at night or when you wake up in the morning, and even wakes up in pain when you sleep; it hurts more when you sit still for a long time, and it gets better after exercise, and you will feel stiff in the morning. , even getting out of bed is difficult. Joints and attachment points are not the only parts it invades. Ankylosing spondylitis can affect the eyes (this is not uncommon), and even blindness in severe cases. In addition, it can also attack the heart, lungs, kidneys, nervous system and other organs, However, such severe ankylosing spondylitis is rare. The main harm is the deformity and disability of the spine and joints. The hunchback affects the aesthetic appearance, and the main damage is the loss of labor ability, the inability to work, and the difficulty of daily life.

To diagnose this disease, some tests need to be done, such as CT or MRI of sacroiliac joints, HLA-B27, ESR, C-reactive protein, etc.

In the beginning, there was no cure for this disease, which was called “immortal cancer”. With the advancement of medicine, scientists have developed effective drugs, and the phenomenon of hunchback, deformity and disability in young patients has become a thing of the past. The main drug for the treatment of the disease is biological agents. Biological agents have fast onset, strong effects and relatively small side effects. They can not only control pain and stiffness, but also prevent joint damage and deformation, and prevent the occurrence of disability. Other drugs include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory analgesics and disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, suitable for use when inflammation of the limbs and joints occurs. The use of NSAIDs should be closely monitored for side effects, which can lead to stomach bleeding in severe cases.

Another important aspect of the treatment of ankylosing spondylitis is daily habits and exercise. Usually sleep on a hard bed, sleep on your back, do not curl up, and take a hot bath every day. Sports include swimming, volleyball, running, gymnastics, etc. Each exercise should be a little longer. If the spine is fused or has osteoporosis, heavy exercise or contact sports should be avoided. The deformed joints cannot move freely, and the muscles should be massaged frequently to avoid muscle atrophy.

Young people have low back pain, back pain, hip pain, etc. If they continue to not improve, do not forget to go to the hospital for examination to rule out ankylosing spondylitis.
