And what of the sore throat and non-productive cough?

Have you taken your temperature and blood pressure?

Because your symptoms began with a sore throat and a cough, I would first suspect that you have an infection.

Neck and shoulder pain, headache, can be caused by excessive coughing and/or viral infection.

Please pursue infection dx until you can rule out.
