Back of the neck pain
I would like to know, the back of my neck is painfull, (not very bad),and I have a headache (not bad).Could this be a sign of the flu?
If you have a cough or sore throat and a fever greater than 100 degrees, it is likely to be the flu. If you do not have those symptoms, it is less likely to be the flu. If you have concerns I recommend that you check with your physician.
