Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
The stiff neck could be due to a pulled muscle or you could be having a viral infection that could be causing the stiff neck along with the other symptoms that you are having.
I would recommend that you should take some over the counter anti-infammatories like Motrin 400 mg three times daily to see if that helps reduce your inflammation and the pain.
These symptoms should go away in a week or two at the most.
Viral infections usually also settle in up to a couple of weeks time.
So the botXXXXX XXXXXne is that this does not seem like anything to worry about and you should be fine.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

I was concerned about some of the things I have been reading online such as a heart problem can appear like this as can cervical artery dissection.
But thank you very much for the information.
You are most welcome Take care Wish you all the best.
