See a rheumatologist: You may or may not have ankylosing spondylitis or a type of autoimmune inflammatory arthritis that tends to affect the axial skeleton (neck, spine, hips) the most. This can lead to permanent deformity and loss of range of motion of spine, or require hip replacements if not treated aggressively by a rheumatologist with a tnf inhibitor (humira, enbrel, (etanercept) remicade) and weekly low dose methotrexate.
