Hello, I was admitted with viral meningitis on the 5th of Feb, I was hospitalised for 8 days.
My symptoms were a severe headache, stiff neck & reactive to light, never did I think I could have meningitis.
Since being discharged I've been constantly fatigued and suffering with headaches which are more harder to deal with at night, I only sleep about 3-4hrs a night when I have a headache if that. I've been back to the GP who has advised me to change my pillow & sleeping position. I went back again a few weeks later and they prescribed me some tablets to try & reduce brain membrane swelling.
I'm exhausted my blood pressure is low & I would go as far to say I feel worse now than I did towards the end of my time in hospital. My family keep telling me I look like death and it's starting to really impact on my 2yr old son😢
Is this normal post meningitis? Should I be seeking further medical advice?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you, Kirsty
