Sharp severe pain travelling from head to legs. Blood work normal. Viral meningitis?

I had what seemed like the basic flu come on 5 days ago but what was different was the all over sharp, stabbing , severe pain on the first night which has turned into a severe pain that has traveled from my head to my legs. It feels this someone has operated on my legs all the way to ankles. My doc thought viral meningitis but the blood work is normal.

Thanks for the query.

You are correct in saying that you might be suffering from viral meningitis.

Blood investigations might be normal in meningitis.

CSF examination is must to rule out meningitis.

Meet a physician and discuss regarding this.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
