Diagnosed June 12, 2012, symptoms were Headache, Fever, sweats, neck stiffness only when nodding up and down, (sideways was fine). Vomiting. Hospital did a spinal tap and diagnosed me, then released me the next morning. I was in bed for almost a month. Seem to get a little better/ stronger by end of July and went back to work (desk job) for 2 months only 2 days a week. Oct 6th, turning point again. Vertigo very bad and could not get out of bed or move my head. (I have had slight vertigo for the past 2 years which I have managed), Extremely out of breath, just getting dressed, I had to sit, walking 100 ft, I was out of breath. This was worrying me as it came on so suddenly, Heartburn where I was bringing up bile constantly, very very mild headache and extreme sleepiness. I went to the hospital on Oct 15th. They took an EKG, heart looked fine, they did bloodwork, all came back ok, they did a lung extra, Lungs look fine, they tested my oxygen while i was walking, All ok even though I felt I had run a mile. So all these now symptoms and all results coming back saying I was good. So now what? I have not been the same since my diagnosis of meningitis, even months prior to the diagnoses, I was very lethargic and tired. I was however doing alot of walking at that time. Doctors I spoke to said they did not know enough about VM to state this could be the after effects. I am thinking that these symptoms are post VM mixed in with a bout of depression/anxiety from being bed ridden. I really don't know at this point. I am going back to my doctor today, but dont even know what to tell her. Will keep you informed of this discouraging journey to let you all know if I get any answers that may help us all here on this forum.
