I had viral meningitis 7 years ago when I was 11 but the 1st hospital I was taken to taught it was malaria because I was in Nigeria, this eventually lead to me being in a coma for 3 days and was admitted for over a month. I had vision problems which was later treated by laser eye surgery. I wasn't aware any other side effects could arise from meningitis until 1 year ago. After that I realized my perception of things changed after I returned home 7 years ago but I thought that was because of my vision problems. I have some side effects such as headaches and co ordination problems. I think I have memory loss because I can't seem some things about home life in Nigeria which my siblings all remember now that I am Britain. I also think i have difficulty retaining information because I often have to read things over again to understand.
I am wondering if anyone knows how I can be sure about having the side effects.
I would go to the doctor but I don't want to bring my family in this.
Thanks for reading.
