There are many ways to assess the severity of spondyloarthritis. But arguably the most important information is how you as the patient perceive the illness. How does it affect your day-to-day life such as your work, your relationship to your family, your major life decisions? A director wants to make a movie that will please audiences; a physician wants to make a recommendation, or prescribe medication that will make a difference to a patient and their lifestyle.
