In brief: Headache,fever

Meningitis presents with headache, fever, stiff neck, and photophobia.
Patients are often dehydrated and appear sick. Minor variants of meningitis are common as many viruses have a predilection for the meninges. For example, many common colds have headaches, presumably from the virus's effect on the meninges. The dangerous forms of meningitis are typically severe and progressive.
