  • Have you been checked for MRSA? MRSA can live on the body and cause swelling and rashes and can lead to meningitis, which would cause neck pain, head pressure fever ext. Also the head pressure could be chiari malformation, it's rare, but can cause All kinds of issues. I have it and it sucks to say the least. It can only be diagnosed with an MRI.

  • check for resistant form of herpes or shingles. this is starting to come out, derm needs to biopsy the sores when you get them. try taking valtrex daily for a month and see if helps. this could all be nerve related as herpes live in the ganglion nerve area.

  • Since you said you have had "all kinds of tests" I'm sure they include blood work? Would be curious to see what your WBC (White Blood Cell) count is. Sounds like a possible case of Lymphadenitis. Just a suggestion.
