In brief: Various

There are various signs of meningitis.
Pain when moving the neck, lisltlessness, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity and headaches (of course headaches would not be something a 2 yo would verbalize). Grabbing the front ofbreast the neck could be a sign of a sore throat perhaps due to strep. If you suspect meningitis call your doctor as soon as possible.
