A 28-year-old male asked about a 39-year-old female:

Neurologist this am: The treatment for flu is symptomatic Tylenol (acetaminophen) and ibuprofen. The stiff neck means you need to contact the treating neurologist this morning. Viral infections can sometimes cause meningitis. That could cause a stiff neck (rather than the chordoma). If you can't reach him/her she needs to go to an urgent care center or ER
