Viral meningitis after effects, mis-diagnosis?


I had vm in 2006 and have had a rollacoster ever since. Occipital pain, sickness, photophobia etc.. I was finally diagnosed with occipital neuralgia and had successful ish nerve blocks. It was decided I would have radio frequency treatment instead as this may last longer and allow me to be meds free, and allow for pregnancy. This we did and after 3 months difficult withdrawal I was meds free for the first time in 8+ years. Then it wore off, I have been waiting for treatment for over 8 weeks now and will get radio frequency on Dec 1st. This time the pain has burned more and I have lower neck pain, cracking, bouts of server sickness, poor sensation down right arm and numbness in hand. GP is great and very supportive and refered me, this takes soooo long. Has anyone e!se experienced similar?
