Hi everyone, I believe I had viral meningitis about a month ago. I thought it was the flu and by the time I realized it could be meningitis (severe headaches, stiff neck, etc), we were about to go under curfew for Hurricane Irma. So, I toughed it out and by the time I could get out again, I was mostly recovered. So, I never had a formal diagnosis. Anyway, for the past few weeks I have felt back to normal except for swelling off and on in both knees and both elbows. Usually there is not any pain, but occasionally the swelling is accompanied by ache in surrounding muscles. I am debating going to my doc, but he is very "test-happy" and I don't want to suffer through unnecessary tests. Is joint swelling a normal after effect of meningitis that will eventually resolve? Is there anything linked to meningitis that causes swelling of joints, for which there is a treatment? Thank you in advance for your thoughts!
