EM is thought to occur in about 80% of infected patients. Patients can also experience flu-like symptoms, such as headache, muscle soreness, fever, and malaise. Lyme disease can progress to later stages even in patients who do not develop a rash.
Various acute neurological problems, termed neuroborreliosis, appear in 10–15% of untreated patients. These include facial palsy, which is the loss of muscle tone on one or both sides of the face, as well as MENINGITIS

I am not a doctor, but I was thinking the same thing. Lyme or valley fever. Again, we are not doctors here, so none of us should be giving this OP any ideas to what to shoot for. I would just bring some of this up to the doctor as doctors see many patients and they are human and sometimes don't think about certain things.
The incubation period of this new "HIV-like" pathogen is around 2 to 3 days (this is the time it takes for the first symptoms of this disease to appear after the initial exposure to the pathogen). Around 7 to 14 days after the initial exposure to the pathogen, many of the disease symptoms will have manifested.
This new "HIV-like" virus is probably not easily transmitted sexually, but is easily transmitted through kissing, which often takes place during sexual contact. This is why people who catch this virus mistakenly think they have caught a sexual disease. But in fact, once someone has caught this pathogen, it spreads to others, like friends and family, by ordinary household or workplace contact. So this pathogen is not to be considered a sexually transmitted pathogen, even though it is often caught from kissing during sex with a new partner (and is often caught from sex — even protected sex — with a prostitute, according to accounts from China).
This mystery HIV-like virus can cause the sudden onset of severe and quite terrible psychological symptoms, including: constant extreme anxiety states (generalized anxiety disorder), depression, anhedonia, suicidal ideation, poor memory and cognitive dysfunction. These mental state changes appear to be physically caused by the altered brain biochemistry and brain inflammation resulting from the infection with this virus.

I hope your daughter will be fine, my cousins grandson had a viral meningitis form just a couple of weeks ago in this area. Although very sick, he is fine now. You could ask the authorities what kind of meningitis was suspected, antibiotics would most likely have been given anyway in the first instance, and you should ask about any tests that have been done, and if there are any results.
Other symptoms that sometimes occur with fifth disease include swollen glands, red eyes, sore throat, diarrhea, and rarely, rashes that look like blisters or bruises.
