Hi all just wondering if anyone has had any problems with high blood pressure, underactive thyroid or anemia. I had pneumococcal meningitis in march i was in a comma for 7 days and on iv antibiotics for 8 weeks. I lost my hearing completely (now have a cochlear implant). I have suffered with exhaustion, muscles aches, headaches, dizziness, visual problems (mainly on moving), moods, depression at times, emotional, struggle with decision making(even the simplest of decisions), probably lots more but cant reall think at the moment. I have had high blood pressure for a few weeks now, my gp is trying to find out the cause and it has come down slightly so not on medication but am having regulat 2 week doctors appointment. my last 2 readings where, 170/100 and then it went down to 160/93. I have had some blood results yesterday which show i am anemic and i have a very low thyroid underactive thyroid. I am starting on medication for the thyroid and anemia today. Has anybody else on here had any of these problems after meningitis. I was a healthy busy mum before this.
. thanks vicky
