Took my Les Paul down to this recording/rehearsal studio near mine with a new band and we were in a very small warm room. My neck it usually a joy to play and I can move about it with real ease. Now when I try play the neck feels ugly and the strings feel just...bad. Like they've been on there too long. Which they haven't, my current set have been on about a month. THey felt fine yesterday before I took it down, today they feel really bad.

What should I do?

They've only been on a month, if that.

I change my strings every 2-3 weeks.

also, what brand are they? some brands tend to wear a lot faster than others, as well as have different effects to humidity and temperature.

did you leave your guitar in your car or something?

regardless, the only obvious solution is to clean your guitar, and change your strings.

d'addarios deteriorate very quickly in my experience, so just change them, and use some GHS fast fret on them or some kind of string cleaner

what you really need is a new amp

No, but I left it in it's case in this hot room as I played drums for about 3 hours then pulled it out.

Strange indeed, my friend had a similar problem a couple months ago he bought some strings and he only had them a couple of days before they felt old and uncomfortable to play. They almost felt sharp - we were baffled. They were those D'addrio chromes, havn't bothered picking any more of those up since. I assumed it had something to do with the weather or the environment but really I have no idea.

You should really consider buying a new pick.
1.5mm would do the trick.
