Then he felt better but by that night he was back in bead for another week with head ache back ache neck ache hips hurting and fuzzy vision and sensitive to light and sound. Then felt better and got up and out the house yet to be back in bed for going on 6 days with neck pain and head ache so bad he can t even move his neck he has sore throat and butt hurts??? I can t barely get him to eat but a couple bites every couple days. So to day he gets up and is very confused??? Just staring off in to space and can not move hardly and saying things that make no seance and I am very scared for him. He knows my name and stuff but is convinced we live in a 3 story house when we live in a trailer???? Things like he told me he enjoyed watching a basket ball game with me yesterday but we didn t. He thinks we ride a school bus! I don t know what to do

Thank you for your question.

The symptoms you have described may be indicative of infective condition like meningitis. Headache, fuzzy vision, disorientation are features of this type of condition. You should see a neurologist on an urgent basis to have this diagnosed. Lumbar puncture is done to obtain samples for identification of bacteria. Appropriately selected antibiotics will treat the infection.

Wish him the best.
