Pain in the neck or pain in the a**?

I'm taking a patient through the emergency room out to the ambulance.

"Hey, Come here." says a nurse. Normally, I love that kind of thing but I've got a patient on my cot and I can't just stop.

The nurse is insistent. She drags me into an empty exam room.

"That sick patient you brought in this morning?"

"Yeah?" Says I.

"Well, he's got Meningitis."

EEP! "Bacterial or Viral?"

"I don't know, I'll find out."

Why does the base of my skull start hurting all of a sudden?
