Viral meningitis
My friend has just recovered from viral meningitis. It has been a few days after recovery and she is still having vision problems .She consulted a doctor and took a scan which revealed that the outer lining of brain has swelled. Are the damages permanent?..Is there any cure as such?..Please tell.

Hi Keerthi,

Viral meningitis is a relatively benign form of meningitis, where full recovery is possible, with rarely any permanent sequelae. There are some reported cases of permanent damages, but not often.

Wishing your friend a speedy recovery

Hi mini_d
I have had weird off and on headache like pressure that accompanied shingles - the shingles on my back is almost gone after 8 weeks - the neurologist says I probably have viral meningitis and that it could last up to a month after the rash disappears - its kinda scarry for me - do you have any insight - i still go to work and sometimes my head doesn't even hurt but other times it does - it never really goes away

i am sorry to hear about your friend and hope she has gotten better.

well, my story is.. my son was 2 months old when he got viral meningitis. the virus affected his brachial plexus nerves and he is unable to use his biceps or lift his right arm to this very day.  I am still trying anything to get it fixed but no Dr. has really helped him.  I am really frustrated but i believe and pray that your friends symptoms will not be as long term as my sons. oh and he is currently 5 years old and has been in PT and used the estem for many years.

well, good luck to you and if anybody else is reading this and could help in any way..please comment..

thanks...
