The AS condition is probably activated so you need a full exam and specific treatment from your rheumatologist. In the meantime, if you do not have any stomach or kidney problem, you can take Ibuprofen 200 mg x 3 tablets (OTC) every 6 hours as needed with a full stomach for 3 days.

The intensity of the pain and the physical changes seen on the buttock on the left hip side require timely assessment as imaging studies will be needed. Having your rheumatologist weigh in becomes critical.
