You need to watch out and get in to the doctor. I don't know much about lyme except that it can affect the nervous system (your spine and brain) and also lupus can. The pain and stiffness you describe could be due to many things, but you can't rule out meningitis, which is very serious. I would call your doc or go in to an ER or clinic as meningitis can be very serious. I've had it before as part of West Nile disease. They can give you meds (antibiotics and pain meds) if you hae meningitis to get you well faster, but untreated it can be bad. Some diseases can cause an infection in the spine, so its best to get with a doc ASAP to be safe. Maybe you slept wrong, maybe you have a more serious problem, no way to know.
