Common Questions and Answers about Stiff neck sore throat headache


I do not have any dizziness/vertigo/vomiting/nausea/upset stomach/muscle pain nothing but a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, horrible headache, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span>/hurting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. I am 22, I have a 7 month old daughter, I am 115-120 Lbs 5'3 and there is cancer in my family, but all theirs was to do with smoking and I am a nonsmoker and so is my husband. Thanks so much. I can not see a doctor as I do not have insurance, do not qualify for state help, and have too much debt/bills to pay for on my own.
For the past month I have been experiencing daily headaches with chronic lightheadedness and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span>/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. I went to a doctor originally who said I just had a migraine and gave me Maxalt and Phenergan. The combination would put me to sleep, but I'm not sure that it actually helped at all. There are times that the lightheadedness is so bad that I have to sit/lie down. Also, I have had a few episodes of the aura I used to have as a child before a seizure.
For the past few days I have had a nonstop throbbing headache, mostly on my right side from the middle down through my ear through my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. I also have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> on the same side of the headache. I have no insurance and last time I went to a clinic it ended up costing me an arm and a leg and I have no money for that right now. Could it be an infection? cancer? strep throat? what's the most logical answer at this point.
If amoxicillin and calvepen (phenoxymethylpenicillin) didn't help I have to wonder if your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> ear, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> are more from a virus. But 2 weeks is a long time for a virus. I'd get a second opinion if I were you. Dr.
I started feeling stomach issues from the same day and after two days i got diarrhea(gastritis) followed by headache, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and backache after few days. I visited a doctor when i came back and he said that most probably its a traveler's diarrhea because of food and alcohol. After another 10 days i got mild sore throat, ear blockage and body pain. I don't have any fever from the day of incidence.
First it started with a sore throat with white spots, they went away but now I have a fever of 99 and headache, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> back, legs and hips also I'm very sleepy and cranky.

4 days ago, I woke up with a bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, very swollen and painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> glands, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> and sore back of neck and bad headache, dizziness, fatigue, and fever. I also was hurting all over--including my skin. It progressively got worse (except the headache and generalized aching) and I finally went to the doctor 2 days ago. I was tested for strep and it came back positive. I was given pennicillin. My question is about my stiff/ sore neck. It hurts to turn it either way. Both sides hurt.
I've had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> for 2 days which is painful. I assume that I just slept wrong but what alerts me is that my neck hurts when I swallow. Why?
I've been experiancing head pressure, some sensation in the ear and occurs sometimes in one or even both eyes and neck pain/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> (I'm so used to cracking or atleast arching my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> to soothe tension but it hurts to do it!). Its been ongoing for the last week, finally went to the doctor to ask what was wrong and he said it was onset from the trauma accident I had done to my shoulder in a car accident....

It has been 12yrs since I had decompression for Chiari and vp placed after 5 revisions to shunt, still after 12 yrs I have not had any returning symptoms other than slight stress headaches which are very normal for me and this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> that has been bothering me for a week now.
I thought I had meningitis recently. I had pain in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, ear, major headache and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. My temp was only 100-100.5 so I didnt go to the emergency room. I went to a ENT doctor who diagnosed me with a blocked salivary gland which probibly was infected. The antibiotics have helped, but the gland is still blocked as we speak. Good luck and be sure to keep an eye on your temperature.

Most of that went away, however it is now Monday evening and my throat still hurts. (It's the front of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> and if I touch the outside of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> it hurts more) I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and back (probably because I keep tossing and turning all night) but now my right ear is starting to hurt. I though maybe it needed to pop or something but it's not just a pressure it's also a small pain.
The right shoulder blade area (rhomboids I believe) are usually the area that responds to liver inflammation IIRC. I get a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> shoulders, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> traps, dizziness, etc. The virus is a toxin. Toxins get stored in muscles. Trigger points are muscle knots with toxins involved. This is why after a deep tissue massage, they tell you to drink plenty of water for a few days after. To flush out the toxins. Muscles have a memory too.
About four to five days ago I began to feel symptoms of fever, including a slight headache, nasal congestion, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and muscles and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. When looking in the mirror at the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> I saw I had a few (four or five) small cold-sore like irritations behind my uvula. There are no lesions, sores or pain anywhere else in or around my mouth, nor on my genitalia. I am wondering if I may have contracted herpes of the throat or if I have simply come down with a fever or cold.
I am 33 years old and have been having a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> since May, 99. It is getting progressively worse where I have had some numbness and pain down my left arm. This worries me because I have suffered with some arrythmias because of a congenital problem around the apex of my heart. My cardiologist assures me this is not causing the problems.
Then two weeks ago I got a cold and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> and fever, and now my pain is back not only in my head, but it affects my entire spine, but this is not new, this has always been for the past 7 years. It feels like it is burning, spasming, especially right between the shoulder blades, and I can't lie or sit comfortably. My head is tender and sore, and there are spasms in my neck and shoulder area.

I had a Total Thyoidectomy 3 weeks ago. Whenever I talk a very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> bulge appears on the left side above the incision.

The majority of viral meningitis in adults causes severe headaches, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stiff</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, feeling ill, light sensitivity, loss of appetite and a whole list of other things.

I AM able to touch my chin to my chest, do not have any sensitivity to light, no headache, no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>... pain in lymphs and stiff neck are the only symptoms I have noticed. They have continued for 5 days now. Otherwise I feel fine. I realize my risk for HIV infection from this instance is extremely low, but I have been quite worried given the correct time frame between possible exposure and these symptoms. -Does it sound as if I am experiencing ARS manifesting itself as viral meningitis?
