In brief: Pain and Stiffness

Although spondylitis simply means an inflammation of the spine, i believe that you are referring to ankylosing spondylitis.
The usual symptoms begin with pain and stiffness of the lower back and the buttock areas. The symptoms are usually worse in the morning and during the night. There may an associated mild fever, loss of appetite , fatigue, uveitis, and mild to moderate anemia.
