Dizziness Light Headed Nausea Stiff Neck
I haven't been feeling right for going on a week now. I have no appetite, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, stiff neck and shoulders and pain in the right side of my head. What should I do?
This is not good and may be a viral syndrome and the nausea and vomiting could be symptoms of a severe illness or problem that needs treatment. I would see your doctor tomorrow or go to an urgicenter if not able to be see at the office. Could be an atypical viral meningitis. This would be unusual especially in the winter but there are also other things in the differential.

Head and neck injury: When one strikes their head on a hard surface and experiences dizziness and neck symptoms, I always get concerned about a head injury (subdural bleed, concussion, etc.) and a neck injury (cervical spine fracture, slipped disc, strain, etc.) although some of these are unlikely, they certainly are seriousness enough to deserve medical attention. See your doctor, go to the er, or call 911 if severe. ...Read more

A diagnosis is very difficult to make without a proper history and physical.
Based on your post it sounds like you may be dealing with a sinus, ear, or throat infection. However the stiff neck is a little worrisome because it could be a sign of meningitis (inflammation of the membranes surrounding your brain and spinal cord), typically meningitis is accompanied by fever.
Regardless you need to be evaluated by a medical professional right away for work up, diagnosis, and treatment.
Good luck. ...Read more
