Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms you are having do not seem to be related to any serious infection like meningitis. It is more likely to be related to muscle stiffness. Gradual physiotherapy and massage in the area will be helpful in relieving your symptoms. In case you have fever the you need to consult your physician for further treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
