Hi all, this is my first post.
I haven’t had meningitis myself but am very close to someone who has therefore I’m now always wanting to know as much as I can about it to be able to offer as much support as possible.
My question is; can serotonin be lost from having viral meningitis? A long shot question I know. Perhaps as a result of having a lumbar puncture? As I’ve read that serotonin is mainly located in the bowel region & brain?
I’m just trying to piece a puzzle together whether post meningitis depression could be linked to this?
Apologies if it’s a silly question but I guess a silly question is the one you never ask..
Thanks in advance and any feedback is much appreciated.
