Mental health illness but nothing else
Tylenol on Sunday and Monday and prescription meds (wellbutrin 300 and cymbalta 60)Fatigue started Thursday, neck pain Saturday night, nausea on and off since Friday.

Are they just nausea or have they vomited?
Have you done any activity that involves a physical effort before starting the symptoms?

No vomiting, decreased appetite but nothing that concerns me about that.
As for exercise nothing more than a twice a day 1 km walk with the dogs. I did not walk on Sunday or Monday because I was feeling unwell. I walked this morning but it was only .5km

Dear *****ient, the symptoms you are exhibiting impress you with viral meningitis.
This type of neck pain with stiffness, in addition to the feeling of nausea.
headache may be associated with it.
This may be related to stress that diminishes your defenses.
Do not be alarmed, I suggest taking tylenol 500mg every 8 hours, hydrate well and eat well.
You should avoid stress during these days, it is advisable to perform neck stretching exercises.
In case of fever, or severe headache with vomiting you should go to the emergency room as soon as possible.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

You can start a Cyclobenzaprine (muscle relaxant) of 10mg every 12 hours that will relieve you.
