Hi, I'm 24 years old and was rushed to hospital with VM in December last year. I've just joined this forum and wanted to know if people have experienced similar recoveries. I am still getting constant terrible headaches, dizziness and extreme fatigue. I have also been on 5 sets of antibiotics since January for getting re-occcuring bacterial ear infections and throat infections. I have also lost a substantial amount of hearing in my right ear which I have been told is permenant and this has been compounded by the constant ear infections afterwards. The hearing loss has been really hard to adjust to. I have just recently started back at work on a phased return, however have found this really difficult and overwhelming especially with the fatigue. So many people have no idea on the after effects of VM and it is so frustrating! Prior to getting ill i was a a sporty fit and active individual so its been really hard adjusting to feeling so tired and unwell all the time! I just wondered if anyone else has / is experiencing anything similar? x
