2. Headache is another sign that you have encephalitis.
The reason for the headache is because there is inflammation in your brain. Bacterial or viral infection is taking over your brain. Rest needs to be done until you’re able to get medical treatment. You may be tempted to relieve your headache with Tylenol. Tylenol may help a little bit, but the headache will come back.
There is no need to take more Tylenol than what is recommended because it can kill you if you do. The best option is to go to the hospital or your primary care physician where tests on your head can be done. This process will belong to the hospital, but it is worth it.
Fill the prescription that is given to as soon as you leave and follow the doctor’s orders. Once the headache goes away, continue taking the medicine as prescribed by the doctor.
