Our expert says:
Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory disease. I suggest you call the Arthritis Foundation on 0861303030 and ask for additional info on this. The fact that you have been so active has probably already delayed the progress and I suggest you keep on being this active. Also do lots of deep breathing exercises. Try and limit very high impact exercises, but all your activities sound good. Currently there is nothing I know of that can really stop the process, but ask the Arthritis Foundation if they know.
