Hi Alisonnn5

Thanks for your post!

You need to present yourself to your doctor's office or hospital - preferably today. While any "symptom checker" could come up with any number of (scary!) things, it's impossible to tell you what may be wrong.

But based on your symptoms (and recent outbreaks) there is a possibility that you may have meningitis and you need to be seen straight away. Please don't wait any longer - see a doctor or go to an ER today. This isn't to scare you - just to rule out this possibility. Then you can go to the doctor and go from there, if you are negative for meningitis. Please keep us updated.
