I have a sore throat and slight neck stiffness, with no other symptoms, should I get to a doctor to be checked out for meningitis?

In brief: ? Meningitis ?

I would see a doc and have a quick test run for strep A, which would need treatment before you spread it to others.
I don't think of meningitis if you are coherent enough to ask such a question. A massive headache, light sensitivity and pain with any movement would suggest meningitis.
