High temperature, sore throat, stiff neck, sweats headache behind eyes and back of head. It throbs when I stand up from bed but subsides. Hurts when cough.

Sounds a lot: Like INFLUENZA (FLU!!!!) Drink lots of fluids, takes Aspirin or Acetominophen for the fever and REST!

If symptoms continue or worsen...Call your Primary Care Provider (PCP) for advice and possibly a hands on examination!
Good Luck BE WELL!
