Good to hear from you again.

As you have asked that is fever and weakness inevitable in your case, my answer is NO, you will not experience these symptoms, if you will take precautions stated above in time.

Consult an Ophthalmologist, and he will manage to control the infection at the early stage, preventing from complication.

For neck pain and headache, you may take a NSAIDs group of drugs empirically.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you a good health.
