Yes I'm known to get harsh pain in my neck and shoulders (with my shoulders even popping which is sort of painful) and my arms sometimes do get numb and hard to move

I actually have the same problems but it is all over my skull, down my neck/shoulders and body to my waist. I got diagnosed with MS in 2002, it started with my legs, torso and moved up to my neck and skull about 1 year ago. Stiffening of the muscles/joints. This along with eye blurryness, floaters, occasional hearing issues, bowel incontrollability, numbness, occasional inability to control a leg (i.e. dragging) and RLS.

Hi, jordand!
What was your first diagnose MS or arthritis?

There are some clinical cases about patients that have both, rheumatoid arthritis and MS (in some patients Arthritis occurred years after onset of MS, and vice versa in other patients)

I also have a large indentation on the top right of my head its got bigger over the last year it's spread down past my hairline to the bridge of my nose. It feels as if my skull is sinking inwards rather than splitting. I get prickly feeling along it also severe headaches dizziness and fainting spells unsure if linked but unsure if I should bother a doctor incase it's nothing. Does anyone have anything like this ?
