What is it, exactly?
The spine is inflamed with this type of arthritis, causing pain. It may cause your vertebrae to fuse together over time. It can also cause inflammation in other joints, such as the hips and knees, as well as harm to the eyes, heart, and other organs. Although there is no cure, medication and self-care can often help to delay or stop the progression of the disease.
Pain in the lower back
Hip and lower back pain and stiffness are the most common symptoms. It frequently improves with exercise and worsens with rest, so it may keep you awake at night and make you feel more intense in the morning.
That's a large word for the pain and swelling that AS can produce at the points where your tendons and ligaments join to your bones. This is most frequently felt near the top of your shinbone, the rear or bottom of your heel, or the junction of your ribs and breastbone. Because you can't fully expand your chest when your ribs are compromised, you may have difficulty breathing or it may ache when you breathe.
