Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You go back to the ER. If they do not do a spinal tap, they should start intravenous antibiotics on suspected meningitis. Just my opinion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
