Mgt: Yes, you can have both conditions. Most bronchitic infections are due to viruses, but some are bacterial. If you smoke, I would advise quitting.

Yes: Bronchitis is the inflammation of the pipes that feed air to your lungs. In this case because of infection. Laryngitis is the inflammation of your voicebox. You can have either or both.

Symptoms are similar: Meningitis is an infection of the tissues surrounding the brain. Symptoms may include fever, headache, a stiff neck (an inability to touch the chin to the chest) and a rash. Generally bacterial meningitis is more serious than viral. However, intravenous antibiotics and other medications are usually initiated until laboratory results and other tests confirm the cause.

Spinal Tap: The standard for diagnosis of bacterial meningitis is the lumbar puncture. In the procedure, a needle is inserted in the lower back to get CSF which is the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. That fluid is then tested for infection.
