Could my cervical disc disorder with myelopathy actually be misdiagnosed for spondylitis, since my myelopathy was a symptomatic response due to a severely herniated disc at the C 6/7 level after decompression and full disc replacement a little over 2 yrs ago?

My appointment was on Monday and… read more
