I was diagnosed with atypical meningitis this last october. the spinal tap came back negative for west nile which they had suspected. i have been checked for several different types of tick virus. when my spinal tap came back "clear" the neurologist cancelled my follow up after being in patient. was referred to rheumatologist that did lots of labs that said I was clear of several autoimmune diseases. Rheumatologist referred me back to neurologist for my ongoing headaches. I've yet to figure out exactly what I had and still have not fully recovered. Still having headaches and pain down my spine especially at the base of my neck, between my shoulder blades, and sacral. Two days ago my neck swelled back up? I'm nervousness that even though I've never recovered from what ever this was its starting over now.
