Ask a Neurologist and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.
Regardless of you having Mollaret meningitis, in view of your current symptoms I feel that you SHOULD attend A&E now for full assessment and to ensure there are no other serious causes or complications.If you’re alone or feel unwell, you should call 999 just in case.
That sounds reasonable. But if you get more severe headache or dizziness, vomiting, fever, rash, confusion, change in your speech/face/vision or any weakness in your arms/legs on one side, you should call your GP, 111 or 999.
I am a GP.
You need to look at your symptoms as a whole; if you have worsening or new symptoms and you don’t feel right, you should call someone for assessment. This could be your GP or 111. If you become very unwell, you need to call 999.
I’ve seen the picture now.
Are you sure it was not there before?
Do you have any sore throat, new pain, fever, cough, earache, etc?
This could just be a prominent tonsil. It doesn’t look like malignant or tonsillitis to me.
