Firstly Thanks for reading this thread
I am iin My 50s now and sadly about 1 year ago i had My 4th Attack of meningcocal Meningitis ( Yes 4 so I guess i should be pleased Ive survived I suppose ) As a summery i had my first 3 attacks in childhood and had appeared to have had little effects. Sadly 30 year on and I was again in hospital in a coma with Bacterial Meningitis again . Regretfully this time I have suffered with complications and to be honest plague My life . The main issues are severe Memory loss which is so embarrishing as i will remember some ones name or information but then its lost and i dont know whom im talking to or even some basis knowledge . Another complication is My hearing is impaired impaired and I seem to have difficulty with my breathing from my nose and i hear sounds in my ears , which is difficult to explain . I also suffer head aches freaquently and take regular pain killer , co codomol ,. I feel it necessary to only work part time afew days a week as my energy levels are poor and im often tired . I also believe my eye site was effected but this is difficult to engage due to my age early 50s .
I know Meningitis can effect people in different ways , however i would appreciate any person who has suffered or has medical insight in to this condition to email me back.
