Heavy head and stiff neck

I don't know if this is the right area to post, but here goes. For the past few weeks I have been experiencing throbbing pain on and off from under my arms to my back and the front of my chest. Its more of a dull throbbing ache than a sharp pain. Sometimes it is accompanied by a fuzzy feeling in my head and a tingling and numbness in my upper lip and face. Now i am experiencing a stiff neck and a heavy head. It feels like someone is pushing my head toward my chest. I also have a slight rash on the front of my neck. I have and appointment to get examined but its not until Jan. 8th. Does this sound like something I should not wait on and go to the emergency room to get checked? Thank you.

It rarely is fatal in adults. Viral meningitis is cured quick  if treated early.
