Back pain/AS

Hi. I put up a post about a week ago asking about axial spA. I just wanted to ask about some symptoms I'm getting and see if it's linked. Brief info, 17 y/o F, I had some history of injuring my back in a minor car accident. Family history of arthritis, MS, Lupus etc. Had a sudden onset of arrhthymia, b9/b12 deficient, and pes planus.

I get mainly lower back pain where it's a painful ache. Sometimes it's located in one spot and it stings. Usually it's all the way across. Sometimes it burns. Sometimes pain shoots down my legs when I bend (sometimes= about once a week). I also get pain in the upper back and in my neck. The upper back pain is the same as lower pain however my neck is burning and aching. I'm not sure if it's all related. I'm also HLA-b27 positive.
