Thank you for posting your query.

I can understand your frustration, however, I can assure you that you would improve soon.

In cases of viral meningitis, MRI brain and CSF findings are often normal. Moreover, symptoms such as headache, dizziness, fatigue, etc may last for upto a few weeks.

My only concern is the rash. In viral meningitis, skin rash may occur at onset. However, you should exclude any possibility of drug-induced rash in consultation with your doctor.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
