Hi everyone! I suffered bacterial meningitis in September 2015, so 11 months ago, and there are a number of after effects that I have been trying to deal with since. However, i am wondering how common it is for meningitis to trigger any thyroid problems? Thyroid runs in three generations of my family including my sister, and i have noticed i am struggling immensely with my weight - continuous weight gain despite moderate exercise and a healthy diet. I am also extremely fatigued, never feel refreshed after sleep, muscle aches and cramps for no apparent reason, low moods and snappy, and i always feel slow and sluggish. Its hard to know what exactly is a result of the meningitis and what could be anything different. Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
