Hey everyone I live in Orange County California. I went to the hospital three times before being diagnosed with meningitis. The first time the doctor thought I had a uti because I was complaining of back pain and I had blood in my urine. The second time they sent me home with an infection. Luckily the third time I went with my gut instinct to go back to the hospital. My head was hurting soooo insanely bad for days and wouldn't go away. I just couldn't take the headaches anymore. They did Ct scan it came back normal but my lumbar showed meningitis. I was in the hospital for 3 days and so thankful I went back. After leaving the hospital I dealt with really bad vertigo to the point where it made me nauseous all day long. I could barely go to the grocery store the lighting and having to focus was the worst. Some days I felt like I was being a baby and over dramatic. I am so thankful for this site and hearing everyone's stories. I felt alone and like no one understood what I was going through. I got sick the start of August, I started feeling better the beginning of September it took around a month to feel normal again. It's the end of September and now I'm sick again with a really bad chest infection. Ive been coughing up mucus for almost two weeks now waiting for it to go away. Should I be worried and go to the doctors again.? Or should I just wait till it passes? I get sick soo often almost every other month. I get chest infections / bronchitis atleast five times a year. Is this normal or should I be concerned?
