42 yr, female. I was diagnosed with viral meningitis in August 2019. After almost 7 months I am still dealing with the headaches, major neck pain and light sensitivity.
There are days I feel like I could run a marathon (ok... not really a marathon but I feel pretty good!) and other times I can barely turn my head from side to side because my neck feels like it's on fire. I haven't been able to narrow down a specific trigger to the painful days and they just pop up out of the blue. Each time the flare up brings up a fear of a reoccurrence! Is this just a sleeping monster that wakes up whenever it wants?
I am struggling to find much relief with painkillers or OTC medicine but my heating pad has become my new best friend!
I am really looking forward to hearing any tips, tricks or advice that anyone has to offer.
Many thanks in advance and I hope everyone is staying safe!
