| | Weird Symptoms; Stiff Neck Tiredness, Swollen Glands?
Hi everyone I am new to the boards. I'm having a bit of a "problem." Last Wed. I noticed the glands under my jaw were swollen. Early Sunday morning/late Saturday night I had uncontrollable chills. I had 6 blankets on, and no matter what I did I was still cold. My temperature was 102. My neck was extrememly stiff, and my head hurt. The next day, I was still fatigued, but I felt much better. Tuesday, the same way. Tuesday night my neck started to really hurt, as well as my head. I can't describe the head pain except for heavy. It is heavy. The next morning I was fine. Now today, I am having a sore jaw, stiff neck, and my ears hurt a little. I also feel tired.
I don't have insurance, my job doesn't offer it, and my parents are not really in the picture. I'm 18, and I don't know what to do. What if something serious is wrong? Can I go to the emergency room? Do they have a payment plan? If any of you know what these symptoms sound like or could be please let me know. I am getting really worried and I don't know what to do. Could it be Meningitis?
