About 6 weeks starting getting headaches ( I suffer from cluster headache). But this headache was different. I went to ER for the headache they gave me pain meds. Went home a week later went to my doctor. He gave pain meds. A week later finally went and saw my neurologist. I told him what was going on. My headaches just didn’t feel right. He asked if my neck hurt. I said yes. But my neck always hurt. Well he sent me to do a spinal tap. ( that was awful). The results came back viral meningitis. I have been off work for 2 weeks now. This has been going on for 6 weeks now. I don’t know if I’m ready to go back yet. Since it is viral my doctor only could give me Tylenol 4 with codeine for the really bad headaches. I am still getting them. But I feel really dizzy and there is so much pressure in my ears. Could someone tell me if they have had this happen. And how long did it last. I think I need to take another week off but not for sure. It has been a very long going on 7 weeks of this crap.
