No, not good at all Sandra. You may have meningitis--a brain infection. You're also very dehydrated. You need to get to an emergency room right away for evaluation, an MRI of the brain, and intravenous fluids. This is extremely serious Sandra and you can't delay any longer. Don't drive yourself to the ER--have someone else do that or call for an ambulance
