Stiff neck associated with strep?
4 days ago, I woke up with a bad sore throat, very swollen and painful neck glands, stiff and sore back of neck and bad headache, dizziness, fatigue, and fever.  I also was hurting all over--including my skin.  It progressively got worse (except the headache and generalized aching) and I finally went to the doctor 2 days ago.  I was tested for strep and it came back positive.  I was given pennicillin.

My question is about my stiff/ sore neck.  It hurts to turn it either way.  Both sides hurt.  When I bend my head forward both sides hurt worse and into my upper back.  Is this something I should be concerned about?  It only started with the onset of the strep infection.  It's been getting worse despite treatment. Is is just part of the infection?

I have exactly the same symptoms.  Did you or any one else just get a TB test done? or have you been going to the lake?  I never get strep this was weird.  What I thought was just the onset of a cold turned out to be hell for 3 days I was in so much pain I could not even walk my neck and back hurt so bad.  I was given cephalexin and darvocet and I was taking mucinex too.  This is the 4th day slight pain in neck and between shoulder blades but feel 10 times better than the last 3 days
