(HealthDay News) -- Meningitis can kill a person within hours. So knowing its symptoms may be the difference between life and death, says the Meningitis Research Foundation.

The foundation explains the progression of symptoms:

  • Fever, vomiting and headache.
  • Limb pain, pale skin and cold hands.
  • Rash, neck stiffness, dislike of bright lights and confusion.

If you suspect meningitis, the foundation warns you to seek immediate medical care.
