No injuries to her eyes, but she does have trouble seeing - can no longer read the screen on her iphoe

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No nausea or vomiting, temperature normal, no dizziness, she does have a stuffy nose, yes to the stiffness in her neck, she did take some regular Tylenol but nothing today. She did have a yeast infection a few weeks ago and took a prescribed medication for three days and the infection cleared up. She initially thought she had a UTI and took an antibiotic but that didn't work so she went back to the doctor and was now that issue has been cleared up and we are now dealing with this one.

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, it sounds viral infection.

And give her OTC Motrin and Claritin.

Do steam inhalation and nasal saline spray and OTC Nasonex spray.

You should hydrate her with Gatorade.

Do gentle massage with muscle relaxant ointment and warm compresses on the back of the neck.

Other possible causes may include Migraine.

In case of high-grade fever, neck stiffness and bad headache then visit an emergency room to rule out Meningitis.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
