In brief: Ask her doctor
Viral meningitis presents with headache, sometimes sensitivity to light or sound, nausea, vomiting, fever, stiff neck, malaise, sometimes mental changes and the spinal fluid shows findings which are not compatible with bacterial meningitis.
Your mom should get better fairly quickly and be back to full health soon, but if you have questions, ask her doctor.
