Hi, I'm hoping to find some answers to my current state of health. I contracted eosinophilic meningitis 9 years ago. I recovered from it with 2 treatments of parasitic drugs. I have had 3 healthy children since. 6 months ago I was sick for 4 weeks, flu like state without the fever, indigestion problems, dizziness, extreme fatigue and weakness, emotionally unstable etc. Last week the same thing happened. I had a bloodtest which came back fine. My doctor thinks I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome brought on by the brain damage the meningitis may have caused. Since the meningitis I am not as strong and my cognitive function has changed but I have never been sick and unable to function in daily life. It seems odd to me that I have not been this unwell in the 9 years since. I trust my doctor but this doesn't sit right with me.
