Thanks for writing to us.
Your father is likely to have nerve compression related symptoms due to excessive syndesmophyte formation in his spine. The medicines he has been given are for general health of his nerves and to provide him the symptomatic relief. These are not likely to alter the progression of the disease.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
