I was told a year ago I have anklelosoty spondilytus. I have not seen a doctor in a year. I noticed this morning one of my toes is turning black. Could this be from my condition? I'm not a diabetic and should I do?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Just ibuprofen 800m and tramadol

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I'm aware of, just a lot of swelling in my legs and feet

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

Nothing helps. If I sit and relax or just move around, there is always pain and swelling

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
