I went to see the walk in Dr at the local hospital saturday before Easter as I'd had a real bad Migraine for 2 days that was not getting any better and any light was extremely painful in my left eye. My temp was 39.6 and i had a very stiff sore neck. I was blue lighted to the General Hospital where i stayed for 4 days. They did blood tests and said there was a virus in my blood and i had low potassium levels and a fast heartbeat?
They also wanted to do a Lumbar Puncture to confirm meningitis but i totally panicked and wouldn't have one. Im allergic to local anaesthertic! So, i was discharged with the diagnosis of migraine and given cocodamol. Ive been resting at home since but still have the headache 10 days later.
Im worried now as I've read in your newsletter that BD may cause meningitis and maybe i should have taken a risk with the anaesthetic.
