Like many here i was discharged from hospital, and told 7 to 10 days, which is in line witht he NHS guidelines (due for review in 2020), hopistal have offerd no followups, no adive, no information about after effectes, they just sent me home with a big box of aciclovir, and said take 3 a day. which i have been doing for 2 weeks.
So. here is my questions. Is it normal to beomce completely sleepless? i am typing this at 4:30am becuse for the 5th night runing i have not had any sleep. but im not sleeping int he day. im ready to drop. i get into bed, and nothing. all that happnes is my head starts to ache.. my nech is stiff. tried new pillows, tired old pillows, tried using old dovet folded up.
I lay there: Awake in the shadows of the gentle night, searching for the stillness I need to get some sleep! The ticking soound of the clock as the hands slowly go round. hearing the birds as the pre dawn light breaks - I am getting no sleep!
I am a school teacher. i want to go back to work, i want to give my students a future a chance in life. and oppertunitys, I cant do this! when i cant reat up and sleep. ihopes to be back at work by the 26th febuary. jsut over a week away. but i dont see how when i cant do the most essentail thing tot he human body. sleep. so any ideas. is this even normal for an after effect of viral meningitis.
(they had to put persumed) - Due to failing to be able to do a successfull spinal tap. to much damage in my lower spin from a horse riding accdent years ago. but the blood works, and other tests were all consistant, they jsut could not get the EXACT cause.
