Can meningitis go away? Ii had a stiff neck and fever/headache for a day but feel fine now. Head hurts sometimes though. Or could it be my posture?

Those. Symptoms do not mean meningitis. You have to rule it out by running tests including spinal fluid. I think it is more posture related like you said from your line of work or staying in the computer too long. Always see your doctor if condition worsened.Relax and get enough sleep 8 hours at least!
