Hey everyone....my name is Katie. I am 26yrs old & just yesterday started getting REALLY bad pains in my neck, it almost feels like a muscle pull, but then again it really doesn't.....the pain extends down my back, to the bottom of my hair line. Also, within the last week, i started getting this weird rash on my face & ear, at first i thought it might of been flea bites, b/c my old roomates had dogs, but then it started looking like a cluster of bumps together, the skin is very dry & very itchy! I looked up signs of "meningitis" & i do have a few of the symptoms, but i dont have a fever right now. So i dont know! I guess i just need some advice or some help from anyone that may have had these issues before, my doctor said i should go to the ER, but i just moved into a new apartment & really cannot afford to miss work, if they tell me something bad is wrong. Im on the verge of tears right now, if someone could please help me or guide me in the right direction, i would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks so much!

  • Are the sores following a nerve line like straight in a row? Is there any discharge from the sores? You really should go to Urgent care or ER to get it checked out on your day off today. Charry

  • The rash is actually on one side of mu face, on the other side on my neck (up my jawline) there's one spot of my arm & now a few new spots on my back & other arm
  • yeah good idea. that does not sound like its cervical realted.
    sounds more like a illness or a allergic reaction. this all coming from a MOM ;)
    get there and get it checked out before it gets out of control.
    even starting a new job work cannot touch you with being sick and having paperwork to back it up from the Dr or E.R.
    so pleaseee don't worry about calling in sick. ;)

    let us know how you make out hun we will be watching for your post!! O:) O:) O:) O:) O:)
