I have sought out a therapist (not TMS since I don't have one here in central Utah), to talk to about emotional issues. I think I need that to deal with my back/hip/SI issues (which are largely right-sided). She asked me if the doctor had ruled out A.S. I wasn't sure - I googled A.S., and hey, it has symptoms that fit mine. I didn't have a blood test to rule it out, but I had an MRI that didn't indicate more than basic ruptured discs, etc. Would A.S. have shown up on the MRI? Has anyone had A.S. and treated it with TMS? Do I need to worry? Because I'm kind of worried. Thanks!
