If meningitis is suspected, than spinal tap is indicated.
Thanks for your reply
Pain in frontal area with history of vomiting and all other normal reports, Meningitis can be suspected only after ruling out other conditions.
I would like to know, is there any history of altered consciousness?
Type of pain (does it relieve with acetaminophen?)
If meningitis is suspected by your doctor than spinal tap is indicated
Thanks and regards
Meningitis is less likely, this could be due to high blood pressure
Thanks for your reply
Chances of meningitis is less likely. However spinal tap is necessary to 100% rule out meningitis.
This could be due to elevated blood pressure. Hope your doctor have ruled blood pressure changes related headache.
