Some of my symptoms are neck pain, ringing in the ears, chills, headache. This started after a ski trip, so i thought it was whiplash, but i never fell?

Various: At this time your symptoms are nondiagnostic and may not be interrelated. Perhaps the neck muscles were strained during skiing or became somewhat inflamed from cold exposure. The headaches may be secondary to this. Chills and headache could be the forerunner of a viral infection. Try tylenol, (acetaminophen) warm packs and liniment for the neck. See your physician if symptoms persist or worsen. ...Read more
