A stiff neck and a headache combined with fever is the classic triad associated with meningitis. This is a condition serious enough for you to seek medical attention.

A stiff neckand headache could be symptoms of a potentially fatal meningitis, however if you've had the symptoms for a week, then it could be stress or sinus trouble.

These symptoms could be an indication that you slept in an odd position or had a neck injury such as whiplash. Other possibilities include cervical spondylosis, flu, and meningitis. Since these symptoms have lasted a week, you should see a doctor who may order x-rays or a CT scan.

If you have been experiencing these symptoms for a week, it may mean that you have meningitis. It's a serious condition and you should seek medical advice urgently.
