Re: sinus infection/cold causes stiff neck??
"sinus infection/cold causes stiff neck??"
Yes, I've noticed for years that whenever I'm having severe sinus/allergy/cold problems, my neck will feel stiff, tender, and very painful. Often the pain will extend down into my shoulders. It's really awful. Whenever I've mentioned this to doctors, they always say it's just tension, but I know that's not it because it happens along with sinus pain and has a definite pattern to it. Right now I seem to have a sinus infection, and my neck and shoulders are killing me, along with pain in my face and ears.
