Will the neck pain of meningitis get more comfortable with advil?
I went to the walk-in yesterday and the doctor said to take 600-800mg of advil 3 times a day,and he told me if my stiff neck continues or my fever stays the same or worse to go back to see him in a couple of days. He said if that's so(or if I suddenly developed a rash) then I may have meningitis or something like that. As soon as the advil starts to wear off just the slightest bit my neck hurts all over again, and I still have a temperature of 100.4 and I was wondering, do I bother to go back and see that doctor or go to the hospital and explain it to them? And would advil really calm down a meningitis induced sore neck?( the pain doesn't just vanish, I just feel relaxed and there's still a lot of pressure in my neck and head.) I appreciate your time! Thanks in advance. The doctor didn't seem too concerned, he was in and out basically. Yesterday it was so bad that I was crying every 5 minutes and it hurt to drive over bumps. Nobody thinks it's serious and I just am confused as to wether or not I should be concerned at all(besides the pain). im also,tired, have a headache,lots of pressure, tired,my eyes are playing tricks on me(it feels like im on a boat),nausea, my lymph nodes are swollen. my head shakes alot too,like an old man with shakey hands. and my chest feels weird

you need to get tested for meningitis if there is even the smallest chance you have it you need to be treated. i had a friend that had it and it went untreated for too long and it caused him to go deaf in his right ear. totally. and that is one of the less serious side effects. i went to school with a girl that went to the dr one morning and was dead by that afternoon because the dr did not test her for it. and it killed her that quickly. go to the er if you have too. 100.4 is not that high of a temp but if it was just a sore neck you would not have a temp at all. you def have something else going on. google meningitis and see what the other effects are. this is one thing you need to not procrastinate on.think about it, there is a reason those doctors are working in a walk-in instacare type place. good luck!

Don't mess with meningitis. I almost lost my son to that. If it is truly meningitis, the pain in the neck will only get worse. The restriction of the neck will also get worse. Get a second opinion from another doctor, or hospital. And do not wait "a couple of days". Chances are you might be ok, but like I said earlier meningitis is nothing to take lightly and can get worse very very fast and can be fatal.
