I am a 17 year old male, and was diagnosed with probable viral meningitis around four years ago.
Since then, I have experienced some minor neurological after effects, such as including Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo a few years ago. However, since last December (nearly a year), I have felt much worse.
Currently, I am experiencing:
Muscle and Bones Weakness (persistent for a few years)
Vision issues (some black spots, particularly in particular lightings- diagnosed with light sensitivity and I wear glasses)
Memory problems (Quite severe- feeling of blankness/brain fog)
Speech issues (occasional- mixing up sentences)
Disorientation (occasional- feeling of dizziness- cured with food/water)
Headaches/ tension (back and sides of head- not very often/severe, made worse with blue light)
Lack of stamina (Easily physically tired)
I have had numerous recent blood tests, which have come back clear. I also had an MRI scan a few years ago shortly after the Viral Meningitis. My Doctors seem a bit perplexed at the moment, and their only course of action was a psychological examination to test for anxiety (which came back completely fine) and lifestyle changes (which seem to have helped slightly, although not with the memory/concentration).
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I am concerned it will continue to have a very adverse affect on my life (particularly school).
In my opinion if u have no fever then forget about meningitis and focus on inner ear infection or inflamation
Also your symptoms can be side effects from antidepressants if you have been in them long enough
If that is not the case then i suggest you take the stress and psychological option seriously
These are after effect or long term complications.. Treatment should be focused on the symptoms and regular check by Brain MRI …physiotherapy and activities like memory training and yoga can be helpful..
this doesnt seem to be active meningitis. seems to be a multisystem affection.
take symptomatic treatment and concentrate more on long term benefits by doing yoga nd physiotherapy.
try avoiding to take medicines for longer periods of time.
CHRONIC LOW GRADE MENINGITIS CAN BE PRESENT DUE TO INCOMPLETELY TREATED DISEASE.
AS ASSOCIATED FACTOR OF STRESS NEEDS TO BE CONSIDERED IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE.
GET BLOOD CULTURE DONE
doesn’t seem to be related to meningitis. i feel that you are under lot of stress and you need counselling for sure.
vitamin and protein supplements will help.
