Can't Post Question - Status Incorrect

I haven't posted any other questions today on StackOverflow, yet when I try, I keep getting the following error:

Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because:

Users with less than 125 reputation can only post questions every 20 minutes; try again later.

Any ideas?

You're sharing an IP with another user, who asked a question 18 minutes ago.

Our throttling in these low rep cases is IP based, as otherwise they would be trivially circumventable.
