What Could Cause Me To Have These Symptoms such as the back of my neck burning up.

Patient: For 4 days now I have been having symptoms such as the back of my neck burning up, pain in my neck, headaches, drowsy feeling, runny nose, sinus congestion and pain, pressure behind/sides of my eyes, upper back pain, and hunger pain starting in my stomach and goes up into my chest. I haven’t went to get checked out yet because I’m working on getting some health insurance but I don’t have it yet and I’m really wanting to know what could be the problem.
