I had meningitis just three weeks ago. 11/8/17 I was taken into hospital with severe headaches, a pain I have never experienced before! Extreme photosensitivity; I couldn't even open my eyes, a stiff back and neck, all cold and flu symptoms and severe vomiting. The doctors confirmed I had meningitis after a lumbar puncture but were unsure whether it was bacterial or viral. They treated me for bacterial I had intravenous antibiotics for ten days. I am due to start a new teaching job in a secondary school where it requires me to change classrooms and go up and down three flights of stairs several times a day (I struggle with my stairs at home at the moment) I am supposed to start tomorrow, I don't feel 100% fit if I am being honest. I don't know what to do. Work are being very supportive and have said to take time off but I don't know whether to test the water and see how it goes. I am currently still fatigued, very dizzy, and full of cold and I am finding I am getting irritated quite easily. The hospital have offered me no after care or advice. I don't even know if I had bacterial or viral meningitis. I am just feeling a bit lost any advice would be hugely appreciated.
