Chronic, long-term back pain is one of the most commonly reported health problems in the United States. Not surprisingly, back pain is also the most reported symptom by people living with axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA).

Other symptoms may also occur with axSpA, such as uveitis, fatigue, psoriasis, heel, shoulder, foot, and other joint pain.

    2. Pressure and inflammation in my eyes. Both knees feel as though someone is stabbing them when I walk. Upper, mid and lower back pain. Hips feel frozen. The list goes on and on….

      1. Fatigue. Burning sensation on the soles of my feet, shooting pains down my legs, ankles and on top of my feet as well as in my joints (finger joints, elbows and knees). I also get migraines. Does anybody else experience these symptoms?
