Hi doctor,

I have severe ankylosing spondylitis since 19 years. I am a 28 year old male, married and would like to have a baby now. I am taking Indomethacin 75 mg and Omeprazole twice a day. My left hip is completely fused, but I have no pain. There is pain in right hip and lower back. Please let me know, can I have a healthy baby. What should we do to get healthy, fit and fine baby? I do not want baby to be defective. Kindly give me suggestions to improve my health. My wife is completely fine and healthy. I have attached my Hb, CRP and ESR reports. Please guide me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Do not worry about your condition and your future baby.

You are fine and your baby will also be fine, as genetic transmission is rare in this case. Again you should change the painkiller if you are not responding to it.

You can start tablet Rofecoxib 50 mg daily for five days and let me know the condition of your pain. Apply Dolopar gel (Diclofenac) topically. Go for active physiotherapy exercises. Take a capsule Nutrolin B plus (multivitamin) daily for 15 days.
