For the past 2 days, I have had a mildly stiff neck (I CAN touch it to my chest without much difficulty at all), and a sore throat. Also a lot of mucas in my throat and nose. Could it be meningitis? What is it, and how should I treat it?

Could it be meningitis? What is it, and how should I treat it?-the fact you've had it two days and you're still with us (and able to type on a computer) goes strongly against it being meningitissounds like a head cold. Take some paracetamol
