Hello,
If you have signs and symptoms indicative of ankylosing spondilitis (morning stiffness greater than 30 minutes, increased pain with inactivity and lying down and decreasing with exercise, definitive x-ray findings), you likely have the condition.

HLA-B27 may not be necessary but I would do acute phase reactants to see how active the condition is (sed rate and crp).

Exercise and NSAIDS are the mainstays of treatment.

Take care.
