Hi All, this isn't for me but my niece. She is being treated for Viral Meningitis but keeps being told different things by different staff. She was admitted on Saturday and has had some anti viral antibiotics. She only had the lumbar puncture this morning. Doctor told her if negative she can go home this afternoon, if positive she will be in for two weeks. Nurse said 48-72 hours before she gets results. She has Asperger's and Autistic Spectrum and is completely freaking as nobody giving her a straight answer. Can anyone help? How long did it take for you to get a diagnosis? Many thanks.
