[QUOTEif they seriously believed it was meningitis they would referred you to a hospital for a spinal tap.][/QUOTE]
Even if it was menengitis and the docs recommended a spinal tap and it came up positive, tehre is no course of treatment if it is viral. They can only treat the pain and offer support. My son had it 2x with in 2 months. We did not get the spinal tap.
