  • Hello, in case of my cousin, the headaches and nausea decreased significantly after about 1 month of antibiotics and anti infflamatory treatment. Just take into account that my cousin was diagnosed when the TB was well advanced. I want to emphasize in the needing of eating and drinking well, I know this is hard, specially with the nausea but can make the difference. I case of my cousin, when she started to be feeding by a nasogastric tube, her health significantly improved. Be strong, your mum is going to be fine.

  • Thank you very much just started her on the nasogastric tube......

  • I. Was in the hospital with bacterial meningitis for 8 days then home with a picc line of antibiotics for 10 days which stopped3 days ago. I am still having symptoms like head and neck ache. Nausea. Chills. But no fever. Not sure if this is ok or if I still have meningitis. Going to call infections dr in morning that I saw in hospital.
