What is ankylosing spondylitis?


#KnowTheDisease Early symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis that typically begin in early adulthood might include pain and stiffness in the lower back and hips, especially in the morning and after periods of inactivity. Inflammation can also occur in other parts of the body, most commonly, the eyes. Seek medical attention if you experience low back or buttock pain that comes on slowly & worsens in the morning or if the pain improves with exercise and worsens with rest. See an eye specialist immediately if you develop a painful red eye, severe light sensitivity, or blurred vision.
