About 3 years ago now I was told after my week long stay in hospital and numerous tests etc that I had contacted viral meningitis. I made a good recovery and was back to work after a couple of weeks. However I was given no information about long term side effects of my condition (or any information about meningitis for that matter!) And I am still getting really excruciating neck pain and migraines at least once a month. My doctors have been very dismissive and have only just agreed to put me on a migraine relief tablet. However, this is all I've been offered and the tablet is not a preventative so I just have to live with the fact that I am going to get these migraines for the rest of my life! It's really affecting work and my social life, does anyone know if this is a normal long lasting side effect or have any idea of how to get the doctors to take me seriously?
