Under 30-something and living with AS

Is there anybody else out there who is in their 30's, has severe AS-related pain which is not responding to treatment (including biologics), and who finds life worth living? Would love to speak to you.

    Hi, My wife was diagnosed with AS and she is 32 years. Medical treatments only targets the symptoms with the use of pain relievers and corticosteroids for the swelling of the joints. 
    Best way to get relief from it by Lifestyle changes and Spondyloarthritis.
    I have read one articles which talks about the symptoms, causes, diagnosis, treatments and exercises.
    My wife is following the exercises. so the pain is in better situation.
