Painlillers done jothing and as my neck became soar And I got a temp I visited my doc who gave me migraleave. Later that night I was admitted to hospital, with suspected meningitis, I had no idea what was going on. I was all by myself and just wanted home. I received amazing care from my doctor in the hospital and was eventually diagnosed with viral meningitis after several tests. i spent 7days on a drip and iv. Although I am now out nearly 4weeks. After one week I was feeling better. I started to do stuff and it knocked me right back down again. I am so so tired and have a soar back near where I got the lumber puncture, my head hurts every other day or when there is sudden movement. I have been told to take more time off work and college but I am nearing the end of my year ad need to pass everything to get In to university. This added stress of missing college is making it worse. When will I fully feel normal again, I was diagnosed today with post viral symptoms.
