Yes... I responded once already. This can be caused by the same virus that causes Hand, Foot, Mouth Disease in children but usually manifest itself as viral meningitis or encephalitis. A group of viruses known as enteroviris 71 and, more common, Coxsackie Virus. Usually an intestinal virus. My son had HFMD and in 3 days 8 awoke w a mild fever, terrible headache and very stiff neck... I wound up w Viral Meningitis..my duration was about 4-5 days and one relapse a year later.
