The : The symptoms you described are worrisome, especially if you have had a fever as well. Young adults have a high incidence of meningitis. The classic symptoms are fever, headache, and stiif neck. You have at least two of these symptoms, possibly three if you have fever. Regardless, meningitis is a life threatening condition if left untreated. If you have not done so already, i recommend you seek medical treatment right away.

Headache: With your description, you should be evaluated urgently to rule out meningitis. Go to an urgent care clinic or emergency room asap. They can also treat this issue once more serious conditions are ruled out.
