Hello;This is not typical of MS.It is typical of disc problems in the neck, the cervical spine.You need to see your doctor and ask for an MRI of the cervical spine to see if this is the case.Many other causes are possible, even sleeping in the wrong position.If it is through the day, it is more likely disc disease.I am board certified in integrative medicine, internal medicine, trained in functional medicine and homeopathy, etc. I am here daily: use my request link as needed and “for Dr. Thomas” in the question title. Give that link to friends, family, associates, etc. Find me as needed for correct, safe and accurate answers.

I thought it was just positional and caused by the way I was lying ??? Now I am scared and panicking :(
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
YesAnd that would indicate a mild problem, fixed with physical therapy.I see no reason to be scared at this point.I do see a reason for an exam.Good luck.Please click a positive rating at the top of this post.Come back if needed.

So do you think it's the way I sleep or a more Serious condition ?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
I do think it is the way you are sleeping and I said so before.But this can still mean disc problems and you still need an exam.I need to see a positive please. We are only paid per positive.Then come back if you need clarification.

So how can a disc problem be causing it by the way I sleep ? Is this something serious ? I am so so scared ? I will go for an exam by doctor :(

You also need to get your anxiety treated, which can also cause this.If you sleep funny, and you have a mild disc problem, sleeping funny can aggravate the disc problem.
