Good morning. My problem started as a slight headache on December 16, 2017, I’m 52 years old. The headache turned worse the next day, light sensitivity, but could still function. The next two days it was extremely worse, major migraine, but pain was different from the previous migraines I had had. Definitely light sensitivity, band of pain around the back and front of my head, kind of pulsating, nauseous, very sore neck and some back pain. After cat scans and spinal tap I was diagnosed as having viral meningitis. I didn’t have a traumatic head injury since I was 5 years old, I do have an auto immune disorder and am assuming it is the reason I was susceptible via breathing in the virus bug from somewhere. After a few days after, the headaches / pain weren’t as bad, but continue along with other symptoms and have added occasional double vision, Spine pain and today one of fingers is swollen and hurts to bend (from the ibuprofen?). The only over the counter medication t helps is ibuprofen, 12 a day, but sometimes hurts my stomach. I’m not able to see a neurologist until April 2018 which is totally unacceptable. I live in Virginia, USA. I’ve been calling different avenues to be seen sooner because I’m sure I’ll lose my job and can’t afford not to work for any extended period of time. I also do better laying down then standing up, hurts to nod and get a little unsteady when standing. I’ll keep you posted as to how it goes for me in case it may help someone. My heart goes out to all who’s experiencing these issues. God speed to you all. Please keep sharing in case your information could help me. Thanks!!
