Meningitis

Hi Doc,

We have an outbreak of Meningitis in our town. What are the symptoms? My husband has constant headaches and a sore neck. He took Grandpa for the headache and Cataflam for his sore neck. He said the pain has gone away. Should I be worried?

Thank you.

Hallo Shoes
the most common symptoms are headache, fever and a stiff neck (can't put his chin on his chest)

If you are unsure, rather see a doctor as meningitis is a dangerous and fast moving disease.
