recurring meningitis
This is my 2nd round with viral meningitis in 2 months I have genital herpes & they had found herpes in the 1st lumbar puncture. This time they haven't found the herpes virus. 8 years ago I had viral meningitis so this is my 3rd time & since then I've suffered severe pain & was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I believe now since this has happened for the 3rd time, I have had meningitis many times these past 8 years but just afraid that drs just won't listen to me as they push it off on the fibromyalgia(which I don't believe I have). How effective is Acyclovir in the treatment of meningitis? What are the chances of this recurring?
