Re: Stiff neck and achy!
I don't know if they're necessarily related but it's hard to tell. I have allergies all year round, and occasional achiness and sore throat. If I feel really achy, along with other symptoms (dizzyness, fatigue, earache) it usually means I have a sinus infection. My chronic nasal allergies leave me susceptible to both viral and bacterial infections. I usually get at least one infection a year that requires antibiotics. It's like I can never shake off a cold like other people.
If my achiness includes swollen glands, earache, or swollen lymph nodes, I'll call the doctor. Last week I woke up with a big painful lump on the back of my head. It was a swollen lymph node, and I didn't know I had one there.
