Hi,

Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX

The classical symptoms of cervical spondylitis (neck) are pain and stiffness. Symptoms are generally chronic and progressive in nature unless medically intervened. As the symptoms of various causes of neck pain overlap considerably, spondylitis is mainly diagnosed by investigation.

If you suspect you might have spondylitis, I would advise you to get X-rays and blood test (hemogram, ESR and C-reactive protein) done. The test will provide clues/signs to exclude spondylitis. Your local doctor can write to the nearest laboratory for relevant tests.

Hope this clarifies. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Regards

Hey,

I have informed XXXXXXX team about this issue. You can write to YYYY@YYYY about your problem. Perhaps you can leave your phone number to them, if needed they can arrange a phone consult with me.

Any way, I shall paste my previous answer here:
