Hello,

If the child seems to have neck or head pain and is vomiting, with or without fever, the child needs to be seen by a doctor immediately to make sure she does not have other signs of meningitis.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
