Hi My son who is in his mid 50s was first diagnosed with Viral meningitis 10 years ago. Since that time he has had 8-10 relapses and is currently back in hospital. The best help has been with a virologist in the hospital who suggested infusions (aclovir?) through a lead in his arm-3x a day for 10 days. My son is very active and adventurous and he is finding the need to remain calm and quieter very very difficult especially with a family. But it seems to me that adrenaline is to be avoided as it were and an acceptance wherever possible that calm periods and quiet wherever is the choice that needs to be made. For some people this virus reactivates if the brain is overstimulated. My sympathy goes out to those who are in this group-very challenging to manage. Find a virologist to help if possible.
