Neurologist 's  Response
Since you are having greenish sputum, you may be having bacterial infection in the throat (tonsil) region. That may be the cause of pain and stiffness in neck. You should consult a physician and after examining you he may start you on a course of antibiotics. Along with that warm salt water gargles may be useful.
Good luck.

Pulmonologist Dr. Shashi Dangwal's  Response
I`m also of the opinion that you are down with a viral and that`s the reason of your body stiffness. But green colour of the sputum means that you have developed superadded bacterial infection. Take a course of antibiotic like augmenti 625 mgm 3 times a day, take tyelenol for body ache and take allegra or cetrizine. Take good nutritious diet and adequate rest and avoid smoking if you can.
