Makimbhai Mansuri

A 31 years-old male, Mr. Makimbhai Mansuri came to get treated for his Ankylosing Spondylitis treatment with Dr. Vishnu Sharma. He experienced the first symptom of ankylosing spondylitis before 2006. Initially, he ignored his symptoms, but, when he noticed his complaints were getting worse, he finally went to see a specialist and learned that he had that gene i.e. HLA-B27 positive and was diagnosed as the patient of Ankylosing Spondylitis.

His pain started first in hip joints. Then he went to orthopaedic and was diagnosed with lower back pain. He was having sacroiliac pain, pain in the lumbar spine, and stiffness in lower back. He was suffering from severe pain as if someone has stabbed. He was experiencing a difficulty in lying down, turning in bed, and raising from sitting position. His pain would aggravate at night, while climbing stairs, and in damp weather.

Due to the pain, he was unable to do even his day-to-day activities. His pain was so bad that he couldn’t stand or sit. His sleep was disturbed, as pain would wake him up in the middle of the night. He was continuously on painkillers from 2006 without much relief in the pain. And, in the past, he had used strong steroids. Recently he has undergone hip surgery.

Finally he went to Dr. Vishnu Sharma in Civil hospital and started treatment and from that time it was effective.

But, with the help of INJECTIONS, he can expect a less painful life, if not pain-free. With continuous treatment, he will be able to live an active lifestyle with a better control of the disease.
