In brief: Hard to tell

Neck pain and joint pain is just as common in eds as in many other non-eds causes.
As far as joint surgeries go, I am not sure what kind of surgeries you had and for what reason. Definitely, eds patients have multiple joint problems (hypermobility, fractures, laxaty etc.) that makes them prone to trauma etc.
