My girlfriend was diagnosed with listeriosis 4 days ago. She was treated with antibiotics. A day after that, she felt her arms shaking and had more tests done. Doctors said it was BM and she was transferred in an isolated room. She has been on IV antibiotics and a few other drugs ever since. This is the third day she's going through that.
Her symptoms include fever, headache, pain in her arms, light sensitivity, drowsiness and dizziness. Last night she told me the fever had dropped. The doctors said that her condition is stable, but the inflammation isn't retreating. She is in a lot of pain. She is really scared and tired, but her mental condition is really good, she has full consciousness at the time being.
Unfortunately, I can't be there for her and I am really scared for her sake, but her family is by her side. That's why I am asking you. Is there anything you can tell me about her condition based on those facts? Also, what are the signs of improvement that I can look for?
I am losing my mind. She's the love of my life.
Please let me know. Thank you so much.
