Question: I have a burning sort of headache, that feels somewhat positional, burning eyes and a slightly stiff neck.
No fever at all and no particular malaise. Is this meningitis?

Brief Answer:
Don't worry, it doesn’t seem like meningitis.

Detailed Answer:


No, it doesn't seem like meningitis. Such symptoms, in most cases, are caused by common conditions such as viral infections for example.

I'd suggest getting evaluated by your primary care doctor in order to understand the underlying issues.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.
