I have just recovered from my 4th bout of bacterial meningitis over the past 15 years. I had pneumococcal meningitis in 2001, 2010 (while 28 weeks pregnant), 2012 (while 11 weeks pregnant), and again this past February 2015- this time it was haemophilus meningitis. I am obviously very lucky to be alive and with very little residual side effects. I am struggling to find answers as to why this has happened and live in constant fear of getting it again. I had 2 head injuries has a child and nose surgery after breaking it- so all of my infectious disease Doctors over the years have thought I must have a CSF leak- as that is a reason for recurrent meningitis- but I have had 2 MRIs, 4 CT scans, a Radionuclide cisternogram and have had several different ENTs and a neurosurgeon all conclude that they can see no crack/leak. My ID Drs have run my blood work and say that I have a great immune system and nothing out of the ordinary there.
Is there anyone out there that has had anything similar or has any insight to share on the subject
