In brief: None

Generally I have not found non prescription products helpful.
This disease involves significant inflammation in the spine and potentially peripheral joints as well . Prescription strength anti inflammatory Medicare needed. Of course one could use similar amounts of over the counter ibuprofen or naproxen but I would not recommend this without physician supervision
