In brief: Yes

Fever, chills, headache, nausea and vomiting , stiff neck, alterations in mental status are all quite commonly seen.
Acute meningitis is an infectious disease emergency. There are chronic forms of meningitis which do not require as rapid attention, but anybody suspecting this disease should see a doctor asap.

Fever, neck stiffness and photosensitivity (bothered by light) are a few of the common symptoms. Defenitely discuss this with your doctor.
