Hello guys. I am Bhushan Ghate. I am from Nagpur, MS, India. I am suffering from ankylosing spondylitis since 1989. I am bedridden since 1996. But from few days i am able to walk with the help of walker. My bone density is too low. My doctor said that my bone density match to the bone density of 100-105 year old person. I am ankylose from neck to knee. That means i am having  bamboo spine & my complete hip & both knees are ankylose. I had to undergo complete hip & both knee replacement surgery. But because of low bone density & my ankylosing spondilitis is still active, doctor has said no to replacement. Hope may be in future it will be possible. I want to meet & know people who are suffering from any type of arthritis or spondylitis. Also want to share my experince with thoes people who are intrested in arthritis or spondylitis. If any one want to contanct me my email address is ***@****. Also any body want to chat with me or want to share his experince please chat with me on ***@**** OR ***@**** than buy. Have healty life. Hope to write more.

Most commonly, aortic aneurysms are caused by hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis).

Other risk factors include various connective tissue disorders such as Marfan syndrome, atherosclerosis, previous dissection of the aorta, having high blood pressure for a long time, trauma such as falls or motor vehicle accidents, and syphilis.

Rarely psoriatic arthritis has been known to cause swelling of the aorta.  See below

Psoriatic Arthritis At A Glance
About one in 10 people with psoriasis also develop inflammation of joints (psoriatic arthritis).

The first appearance of the skin disease (psoriasis) can be separated from the onset of joint disease (arthritis) by years.

Psoriatic arthritis belongs to a group of arthritis conditions that cause inflammation of the spine (spondyloarthropathies).

Patients with psoriatic arthritis can develop inflammation of tendons, cartilage, eyes, lung lining, and, rarely, the aorta.

The arthritis of psoriatic arthritis is treated independently of the psoriasis, with exercise, ice applications, medications, and surgery.
