over time I am getting worse; Fibro or MS?

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 8 years ago and it seems like over time I am getting worse; I don't respond to fibro meds and am in constant pain. For quite some time I've been losing feeling in my hands and feet with numbness and tingling. I'm getting more muscle spasms and was recently put in a soft neck collar because the pain in my neck has gotten so severe that it wakes me from my sleep. Could this be MS and not Fibro?

Have you ever tried Chiropractic Care? What about an MRI / x-ray? Do you think its a pinched nerve? It can cause muscles spasams, dumbness / tingling.
