URI: This sounds like an acute viral URI (common cold) possibly complicated by bronchitis, but without seeing you and examining you it is really very difficult to predict. Hope you get better soon and don't have to see anyone, but if you get worse or do not get progressively better you should be seen by a doctor. ...Read more

Clivus chordoma patient having flu Stiff neck and sore throat Her body is paining due to fever What will be best medicine to take away this flu?

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 ...Read more

I have a slight fever, I'm very shivery, and have a runny, backed up nose and a stiff neck. I also have a very, very sore throat. Do I go to school?

I have a slight fever, I'm very shivery, and have a runny, backed up nose and a stiff neck. I also have a very, very sore throat. Do I go to school?

No. Get checked out.: I am worried about that stiff neck. While unlikely - and you have probably been immunized against bacterial meningitis - it's worth checking out. Your very sore throat could be strep or mono, though most people don't get the runny nose with these - unless unlucky to have an upper respiratory tract infection at the same time. You should be medically cleared before going to school. ...Read more

I have a fever of 101.7, headache, stiff neck, random chest pains, sore throat, difficult to swallow, can barely eat. What are these the symptoms of?

Likely Influenza: This sounds like the flu. If the symptoms just started tamiflu (oseltamivir) might help shorten the course.

I have a sore throat and a stiff neck with no fever and kind of weak. I've tried throat spray, muscle rub, Vicks, and day quill with no relief.?

Doctor can evaluate: Throat pain can be from strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees a doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to see about antibiotics). A complaint of "stiff neck" sometimes means serious things. A Dr. Should check. ...Read more

5days ago I gave a blow job & now I started feeling sick bones are sore, stiff neck, fever, sore throat, shaking, sweating at night, bumps on tongue. Culture showed strep. Can it really be hiv? Or of it was hiv the culture wouldn't show strep

HIV vs Strep: HIV RNA, Rapid antibody test – would likely not give a positive for HIV within 5 days of contact. A culture that is positive for strep means that the bacteria was actually grown out. That means that it was not HIV that was grown. You can be tested separately for HIV. ...Read more
