My 8 year old survived pneumococcal meningitis in march 2016. Hes changed so much and struggles daily with school, he finds the work too hard. He also suffers with fatigue and low moods. Hes recently been referred to the local mental health team by our gp. He complains often of leg pain which only occurred after the meningitis..is this a common problem for anyone else?? Infact if theres anyone else thats had pneumococcal meningitis and can tell me what issues they have had to deal with it would help me loads, my son isnt very good at explaining how he feels so i feel like i dont quite get what hes going through!
