Ankylosing Sopondylities

I'm 25 year old. 3 years ago I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylities. Initially pain was very less but from last 6 months I have severe pain. I can't walk I can't sleep. I have severe pain in knee and feet. Without painkiller tablet I'm unable to walk now. Please suggest me what should I do now to get better.

Ankylosing spondylitis has mainly two modalities of treatment. Medications and physiotherapy. Medications involve painkillers and some drugs for reducing the effect of ank spond. Physio is mainstay in treatment to avoid stiffness. I suggest you consult a rheumatologist first for medical management. And once pain subsides you can start Physio, and some exercises, swimming or water walking also helps.
