Hello,
First time poster long time lurker/observer!
For the last week an half or so I've been suffering with a stiff neck and some mild headaches that seem to hang around they was the first symptoms but after a while the neck has seemed to become more stiff and I've started to feel spaced out and not really with it, sometimes forgetting some simple things and struggling to understand different things. I feel a little dizzy from time to time and loose my appetite, I do eat and don't struggle to finish a meal but I could probably go with out and not feel hungry.

A little background information, I used to suffer with anxiety quite bad for a while and had mild OCD about four years ago then I got onto weed, quite heavily I used for about four years. Recently I gave up weed and smoking in general and have been sober for about two months now. I fear the anxiety has come back quite harsh and I fear I made myself a little more ill the other night, due to worrying I caused myself to throw up, although that's what I believe caused it.Now the anxiety is causing me to believe I'm seriously ill at any sign of a spot out of place or a random pain.I feel mentally exhausted from worrying, this paired with the spaced out feeling doesn't help.

I've been to the doctors a few times since the problems have been around, first was put down to repetitive strain injury, which I agreed with due to the many years spending days/nights on the computer in awkward positions, but I scared myself straight into believing it was meningitis and was very very worried.

sorry for the wall of text, hope someone can shed some light on this all?
thanks in advance.
