hai ,
you can easily get over ankylosing spondylitis ,control it and lead a normal life . First you have to reduce your weight . next you have to do active physiotherapy - if you know swimming that is the best form of excercise - do swim for 1/2-1 hour weekly 3-4 times. There are a huge range of medicaitons to control the disease do consult a qualified rheumatologist.

Thanks for posting your query.

As you know there is no cure for ankylosing spondylitis, but do not become hopeless.

Aim of treatment is to relieve the symptoms, improve spinal mobility where this has been lost, and allow you to follow a normal occupational and social life. You must pay continuous attention to adequate posture, mobility, and exercises.

I suggest you to consult a rheumatologist, who will refer you to a physiotherapist and will probably start you on medicine to slow down the disease and reduce pain.

Because every person’s ankylosing spondylitis is different, your rheumatologist will probably select different treatments over time to find the best one for you.
