Avatar n tn I've had same symptoms on and off for over a year now. Sore throat , sore neck and shoulders. I've taken antibiotics everytime and it clears up in days. Never had any of these symptoms until I was diagnosed with hypothyroid. I started taking Synthroid at first and then switched to Armour Thyroid, still get the sore throat and neck pain.
Avatar n tn I had a sinus infection that started out as allergies that I went on an antibiotic for the same day I came down with the stiff neck. I am pretty certain the meds did not cause the stiff neck but I am thinking more about the virus thing because my immune system was down. I have not been sick for over 30 years so this is very strange for me. If anyone else has had a similar situation I would love to hear from you!
Avatar n tn It will go away with meds for a few hours, but I do not want to keep taking those. I also have a sore throat, and stiff neck. This is all on my right side for the most part. I forgot to mention in the doctors post that I have wisdom teeth coming in, which could somehow be related I suppose. I do not have any dizziness/vertigo/vomiting/nausea/upset stomach/muscle pain nothing but a sore throat, horrible headache, and stiff/hurting neck.
Avatar n tn The reason I am asking is because within a few days of having protected sexual intercourse and cunningulus, I started having painful lymph nodes, sore throat, and a small fever. Is that to soon to cause HIV symptoms? My other question is, it has been 20 days since my encounter, is there a test at this point that I can take or is it to soon?

Avatar m tn I started feeling stomach issues from the same day and after two days i got diarrhea(gastritis) followed by headache, stiff neck 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.

Avatar m tn my neck was incredibly stiff, swollen lymph node on my neck, sore throat etc...I went and played some bball and took my mind off of it and now my neck is perfectly fine. It's all in your head man, and the stiff neck is definitely due to sitting at the computer with your head craned and looking at stupid HIV ****.
Avatar f tn My throat isn’t sore, it’s just an annoying sensation. My main problem is my neck. Starting to worry it’s something more serious.
Avatar m tn I've read that stiff neck and swollen joints can be early symptoms of HIV infection (ARS). Suppose they occur, how long after infection are these symptoms likely to occur? Is it 2 to 4 weeks like Fever, Swollen glands, Sore throat, Rash, Fatigue etc...
Avatar n tn I do not know if this is a sign of depression. I am not sure what you mean by "rice crispy feeling" but I am assuming that you mean it is either crackling or popping when you move it or it feels like there it has little stones in it. My thought is that you may have a very stiff neck caused by muscle tension. Try gently stretching your neck forward and to the sides and also rotating it around in circles (both ways).
Avatar n tn upon arriving back in minnesota my neck became very stiff, and although i stopped smoking (i smoke roughly a cig or two daily) after the scare of the chest pains, i shared a cigarette with my friend, and woke the next day with a bad sore throat. my neck then became extremely stiff, as did many of my joints. it has been three days since i got the sore throat, and it seems to be getting better.

Avatar m tn Hello again experts... Just wondering.....if one has a really bad neck pain can't even move the head and totally paralized because of the pain, with no other syntoms whatsoever...no rash sore throat or fever...would that sound like ars? I must add, the pain sounds neuralgical, can't even nod....I'm just wondering because doctor hhh said stiff neck could be syntom... What do you think?
Avatar n tn About 3 or 4 days after the event I got a sore throat lasting 4 days or so accompanied by swollen glands in my neck and a stiff neck and some sore joints- my throat looked red and whilst it was sore i wasnt unable to swallow or eat and I wasnt wincing in pain or anything, the next stiffness only lasted a day or two and the glands when back to normal after two days. Despite being on PEP I'm terrified that this is ARS.
Avatar m tn It could be stress but I had a mild sore throat yesterday with a little neck pain I took an antibiotic just in case and the next day the sore throat subsided and my neck was a little stiff. By the evening I had a headache that was so insanely painful i wanted to cry. My neck was killing me and I had to lay there on a towel full of ice just to tolerate it. When I woke up today my headache is gone but my neck is stiff and still a little painful. Is this something to worry about?
