I'm not quite sure if what I have is serious

Patient

Q: I'm not quite sure if what I have is serious or not. I went to the doctor on Tuesday, they tested me for strep and flu, which both came up negative. They found that I had ear infections in both of my ears, and persribed me amoxicillin. As I was walking out the door, he asked me if I could put my chin to my chest, and I did, it just sent a slight stingy pain down my neck. He said that I have possible conditions of meningitis, and told me I should keep an eye on it. I got home and started looking into what meningitis was, and I noticed that I had a couple similar symptoms. I aslo noticed that there were a couple missing pieces that just didn't quite add up. I also had additional symptoms that dont correspond with meningitis at all. My mom said that if I still feel like crap on Monday, she will take me back to the doctor. (I have never had a fever while sick, in my entire life, and now is no exception) (I also have a history of very reoccurring UTI's my entire life, I've had my gallbladder removed, I was recently hit by a truck, but made a full recovery, and I have been to the hospital on multiple occasions with severe abdominal pain, where they've told me nothing is wrong and sent me home. Still haven't figured out what it is)
