I have the condition Bechterew or SA and I also have this gene HLA B27. Could it be that this gene simply attacks any strange attack on the body? For example I have an uprising of pain each year in the months of october/november and february/march. These months of the year are equal with the changing of the seasons, the fall and spring.
It has been proven that this change in nature causes a change in the body chemistry especially in the colen. Now this change in body chemistry could be seen by the gene as a hostile attack on the body itself. Are there scientific studies on that? Do you think this can be case? And what can be done about this?

Hi, when I go for a long walk, I get a pain in my left foot for a short while. Now I have been ex-rayed and I have a Calcaneus Spur and have been told I have this HLA B 27 gene. please advise


@Coppensbart: i am HLA b27 positive and suffering from AS. My grand father has same condition as you said, except that he gets pains/changes in the body during august/September months of year(climate changing in india). i am not sure he is hla b27 positive or not.
