    Characteristically, the first symptoms of AS are frequent pain and stiffness in the lower back and buttocks which comes gradually over a period of time.The pain is felt on both sides and persists for at least three months. It is usually worse in the mornings and night but the condition can be improved with light exercise or a warm shower.
