Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Swollen neck and headache re like two different problems but may be related. The causes can be plenty. You need to be more elaborate in the type of swelling she is having so that we can help you. Right now it is best to have it examined from a surgeon.

i was stung 3 times in my right arm/hand @ 30 hours ago by hornets. The sting site is not horribly swollen however still hot to the touch. I woke up this morning with a terrible stiff neck and headache and got a nosebleed about 2 hours ago. Not sure if they are related or not. Can a bee sting cause any of these issue today?

I noticed a pain on the right front side of my neck a few hours ago. It feels similar to a strain. About an hour later the left side started to do the same thing. Now about a half hour ago I also developed a headache and feeling extra tired. What could be causing this?
