Is it possible to have meningitis with 5 days of SEVERE headache and neck ache, but no other symptoms? No fever, nothing.
Not likely. Meningitis can be caused by variety of infectious organisms, especially viruses, but also, bacteria, and fungi. I have almost invariably seen fairly high fevers, significant malaise, nausea, vomiting, confusion, other than immunologically suppressed patients, who early on, seem rather mild. In your case, I seriously doubt you had meningitis, and wonder wonder about migraine.
Can meningitis JUST present with severe headache and neck ache alone, for 5 days worsening? No other symptoms.
