Can spondylitis cause you to lose height?

Can spondylitis cause you to lose height?

I have recently been measured at the hospital and have been told that I am 4ft11ins I have always been 5ft, I know it's not much but when you are my height every little helps, I have not grown since I was 14 always hoped to grow a little more but as I am now in my 50s there is no chance of that now but shrinking is something that terrifies me.

Stand Up for your self

Stand Up for your self
