Hello all, wow the fun doesnt stop does it?? Viral meningitis 1 year and 11 months ago and thought i was getting it again but no. Luckily not. Still in hospital for 2 weeks with post trauma migraines and medicatiion overuse. I was using too much codeine for the headaches and body aches and it created the headache to become worse. Got so bad I was having light and sound sensitivity and nausea as I gave up the codeine and the headaches got worse over two week period. Into emergency, no meningitis found but an analagesia induced migraine condition. On lignocaine infusion for ten days and no codeine allowed so withdrawal and continue the ampitriptyline to control neuropathic pain. Its getting better actually but the headache is still there in the background. The drs said it could take 12 months to get under control. Anyone else had post trauma migraine they would like to share ? Any luck with alternative medications or acupuncture etcfor migraine? I have to slow down also as I was going like a cut snake and it did not help. Must relax more, smell the roses and live differently. How are you all going for changing your life styles? thanks and best wishes to you all my fellow meningitis survivors!!
