Hi
Thank you for your question.

The symptoms of headache, fuzzy vision and disorientation may be indicative of infection like meningitis. Low appetite, fever and back pain are other associated symptoms. A detailed clinical evaluation by a neurologist can diagnose this. To find out the causative organism of infection a lumbar puncture is done and sample is sent for cultures and staining. Appropriate antibiotics are needed to treat the infection. He needs to see a doctor as soon as possible.

Wishing him the best recovery.
