I was discharged today after contracting viral meningitis. I thought it was just a seasonal bug until still neck, pain to look at lights, and a rash on my neck developed - my GP then told me to call 999 which obviously panicked me massively. All this, 2 days before my birthday. I ended up in a side-room for two days.
I’m scared. I’m usually brave but in this case I’m petrified reading about the after-effects, and not being told a single one of them by the doctors. How can I mitigate them? How likely am I to receive these? What do I need to know?
I’m so scared and would really appreciate any advice you can give.
