Brief Answer:
Can be due to spondylottic changes.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query.
The neck stiffness, headache, numbness on the right side of neck can be related to spondylottic changes of the cervical spine. Regular physiotherapy with muscle relaxants and methylcobalamin supplements can help.
The constant fever is suggestive of infection due to chronic sinusitis that needs proper prescription broad spectrum antibiotics to control.
The lower back pain is also related to spondylottic changes in lower spine. Do consult an orthopedician for MRI scan to confirm diagnosis and get proper medicines prescribed.
I hope this answers your query.
