Meningococcal Meningitis- 5 years on


A year ago I wrote my first post here about the headaches I was suffering. I assumed they were migraines (as I'd never experienced headaches or migraine before the meningitis, I wasn't sure how they were supposed to feel). Well last week I underwent my first CT since my diagnosis, attempting to find out if it was lesions on the white matter causing the pain (I'd had an MRI post recovery a few years ago, which showed lesions). Today my GP informs me I have intracranial hypertension. This is a complication I wasn't aware of, so I guess what I'm wondering is has anybody else experienced this after their battle with the nasty M?
