Stiffness in neck, severe headache, nausea during loose bowel movement. Another episode of nausea and vomiting on driving. No BP, sinus, ear infection. Root cause?

Hello Doctor.... Yesterday my wife experienced a stiff neck , a severe headache and naussia during a bowl movement. She claimed that the BM was loose so there was minimal to no straining but she thought she was going to explode. She went to see her MD and no issues with blood pressure, sinus nor ear infection was identified. An appointment for a catscan has been made. Now this afternoon, she had a similar situation but ONLY a strong neck ache resulted. Do you have any ideas on the root cause? Just another tidbit, she also felt nausseous when driving home 2 days ago (1 day before headache) and vomited. Not sure if all of this is tied together with some sort of allergy or virus but would love your opinion.

all symptoms except loose bowel can be attributed to some sort of pathology related to head and neck region likely within the head but will need more history and clinical evaluation then further a ct scan.
seems to me loose stools r all together a different pathology.
straining is there at defeacation however mild it may be and such straining can increase a head pathology.
cannot comment more with just such lithe info.
needs a very close careful look - take her to a specialist neurologist
God Bless
take care.
