In brief: Probably unrelated

You can't get chemical meningitis from taking this (or any other antibiotic) by mouth.
Most people with "classic meningitis symptoms" don't have meningitis. See your doctor if symptoms continue or if severe. (If severe headache, high fever, or altered consciouness, get seen immediately, with an ER visit if necessary.)
