Symptoms Of Meningitis?
I am 19 years old, my back head has been very skt for 3 days and my spine is added as well, like if I cough up laughing my bones will go up to my head until it feels like my head wants to break
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Meningitis is an infection condition in the brain covering layer and can occur due to bacterial, viral, fungal or parasitic infections. This condition can also be triggered by medical procedures such as brain surgery, head injuries, cancer, and certain drugs.
Common symptoms of meningitis include:
High fever, stiff neck, severe headache, spasms, difficulty concentrating
So that your complaints with the pain that is localized to the back of the head, spine, and the pain that is triggered by coughing or laughing, is not a specific symptom of meningitis. We are not saying that you definitely do not experience meningitis, only the symptoms are not specific. That is, meningitis can occur, but so is the case with other disease conditions, such as migraines, cluster headaches, TMJ disorders, and spinal displacement.
We suggest that you check your condition with a neurologist for further identification of your complaint. Your doctor will try to find out your history, carry out a brief physical examination and may be supportive such as a blood test, CT scan or X-ray if necessary. From here then you can determine the best treatment of your condition.
Meanwhile, the consumption of painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs sold freely by reading the rules of use listed, adequate rest, drink plenty of water, avoid cigarette smoke and stress, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
