major shooting pains in my neck

Hi everyone hope you are all emjoying the weather.

I was wondering if anyone else has had pains in there necks so bad it feels like someone is stabbing you in the neck and lower skull. I had it come on all of a sudden and it has made me really sick through the pain and I can’t let anyone touch my neck cause the pain is so bad.

If anyone can help then that would be great

Thanks

Could be occipital neuralgia? I thought I had this, but it turned out to be migraine instead.

In MS, it’s caused by inflammation of the occipital nerve, which is at the back of the skull.

This will get you started, if you want to look it up:

Definitely worth a phone call to your MS nurse I would think.

I hope it gets better soon!
