Hi, has anyone else suffered from bad memory recall/bad short term memory since having VM? I was diagnosed with VM back in March 2019 and the Dr’s were brilliant from time of admission they queried Meningitis and even said they weren’t sure if it was Bacterial or Viral (never heard of Viral before until then!) within 12 hours I had a diagnosis of Viral Meningitis. They sent me home after 5 days in hospital with pain killers and said I would recover within 10 days and signed me off work until then.
After 10 days I returned to work still very tired and still had bad migraines and neck pain. I sat at my desk for 30minutes trying to work a system that I had easily been able to use before but I couldn’t work the basic applications at all. After a week of trying I tried to hand my notice in work through pure frustration and thankfully my boss refused it and told me to go back to the Dr’s. The Dr’s then signed me off several times over a period of 6months until I had my neurologist appointment where I was put on different medication to ease the migraines and told my memory issues were not a side effect it was because I’m a Mum of two little ones.
Fast forward to now and I’m still struggling with some memory recall, even if someone told me to remember something or get something from another room majority of the time I will have forgotten what you asked before I’ve got to that room. Has anyone else had this side effect at all?
