I knew something was very wrong day one of my meningitis. Getting my GP to agree that it wasn't just a bad migraine took much longer. Left for a week on my sofa begging for help, having an ambulance cancelled on me and being misdiagnosed over the phone twice (by Dr's who refused to make a house call) I finally collapsed and fitted. Rushed to the hospital it took 25 minutes and I was diagnosed with meningitis...thank god treatment could start.
You know your body. YOU know when it's not just a usual symptom to a condition you've suffered for years. Don't be complacent...make a fuss, it's your life.
I'm lucky to be alive...thanks to the amazing staff at Southampton General hospital
