I had severe Spinal Meningitis at the age of 17mo old. I was expected to die. Was given my last rights and had my funeral all planned by my parents. Obviously I survived. I visited the Mayo Clinic often from that point in time to age 18 just to see how I was progressing. I made a full recovery (so I thought), but since I had many sports concussions and then sleep apnea for 10 years, I have had brain issues now and they are not going away. Headaches, memory issues, and cognitive issues. Does anyone know if Meningitis stays with you for your entire life and you never really get to 100%? Or is this the result of my other issues. I have seen Neurologists but they cannot give me any answers. Anyone have a similar situation such as mine?
