Yes: It can cause transient worsening depending on the pressure of the brain, which is usually higher early morning. It can also present with seizure, which might not be a typical convustion attack, but mimicking mini-stroke. Please seek medical attention, if you have any concerns.
A 38-year-old female asked:

Yes: Pinched nerve can cause left arm pain, which can be confused as a heart attack. On the other hand, heart attack can be mis-interpreted as pinched nerve. Please consult your doctor, if you have question.
A 56-year-old female asked:
Dr. Yoshihiro Yamamoto
Neurosurgery 36 years experience
Various options: Ankylosing spondilytis can limit some of the surgical options and outcomes. Treatment needs to be indivisualized depending on what your x-ray, EMG test and MRI showed, and how well you responded to physical therapy and steroid injections. Please discuss with your doctor and ask second opinion, if you have still questions. I wish you the best.
