Possibly: This problem mandates a real-time (face-to-face) meeting with a doctor. A history has to be taken along with a examination as well as labs and other tests. Only after all this will your doctor be in a position to tell you what's wrong and what needs to be done to help you.

Headache: Headache, stiff neck, and sore upper back may all be part of the same complex. However the symptoms may be also associated with very serious conditions such as meningitis.
