I am currently recovering from my third bout with Meningitis. The first time was Viral in 1998, then Bacterial in 2008 and I spent 3 days over Christmas 2014 in ICU unconscious. I am home recovering. All 3 times were exactly the same for me. Extreme headache onset instantly with nausea. Fever the first two times but no fever or elevated white blood cells this last time. I am 51 years old and no one seems to understand the after effects that I'm dealing with. Has anyone else had it multiple times and if so, have you found any reason as to why?
