Our expert says:
I do not think that you have to be concerned about meningitis, as he will have severe headaches, a very high fever, nausea, be sensitive to light and loud noise and have altered conciousness. You can however, do a simple test by letting him lie on his back and stretch his leg. If he does have meningitis, he will experience extreme back pain. He will also not be able to touch his chest with his chin. If he is unable to do this, I suggest that you immediately consult a doctor for tests.
