My journey

I had a ruptured brain aneurysm Dec 9th 2012 clipped to save my life.While recovering I spiked a fever of 105 , had a spinal tap done and it was bacterial meningitis , now 5 yrs later I suffer from chronic dizziness ,I had a total of 3 brain aneurysms and in May of 2015 I was diagnosed with hydrocephalus so the 4th brain surgery was a magnetic programmable shunt but I still to this day suffer from dizziness and fatigue all the time ,any info or help on this would be appreciated .thank you!

Oh my you are blessed to be alive! I am 2 years out from having meningoencephilitis. I was on life support 6 days and in the hospital 6 weeks. Had to learn to walk again, talk, and everything else because i had lost all my mucscle mass. The good thing about it i don't remember the weeks in the hospital. I have decided the dizzeness is not going away. The fatigue is always present even if i try to exercise. I havevlearned to rest when tired and be aware of the dizzeness. Wishing you thevbest.
