I would like to know what HLA-B27 is, as well as what you think the connection between pf and reiter's syndrome and spondolytis is.

Also, how you were diagnosed (what tests, symptoms etc.)


Thanks so much for any generous answer you can provide.

In short but don't blame me for forgetting things

Reiters and ankylosing spondylitis are rheumatic diseases which may occur after an infection (bowel, urogenital) in people who are hla-b27
positive. hla-b27 is a human gene and is examined by a simple bloodtest.
Plantar fasciitis is known as a complication of these diseases.
Furthermore also crohn's disease (chronic bowel disease) is connected to hla-b27.
