Hi, I posted a questions to headache forum yesterday, but thought I would do one here too.
I was diag. with viral meningitis and also whiplash 3 months ago. Presented to ER with severe headahce (worst in my lifetime) eye pain and vision loss, red hot stiff neck, fever and general lack of energy. Was on prednisone for 3 months and Skelaxin (muscle relaxant). I am much better but still having weird head pains (feels like my brain is sloshing around) neck pain on right side with tenderness right under the ear, and eye pain (both eyes feel sore behind the socket). No longer on any meds but still having symptoms that no one can diagnosis. I am current thinking it has to do with CSF problem or blockage of CSF (as it progressively gets worse as day goes on) and I have 20 symptoms that are listed on their website for this problem. Does anyone else have any other ideas --neuro dr. looks at me like I am crazy or making it up (I AM NOT). Really bad days I cannot do anything for the pain. Had bad chiropractor exper. some years ago for another problem , so really do not want to do that route again but will consider it if cant come up with another solution.
I was really hoping to hear from someone or the doc regarding my previous post today.
Does anyone have anything similar to my symptoms. Have had MRI/MRA (negative)
x-rays (nothing) and blood work showing nothing abnormal too.
Dont think i'll be too much help but some of your syptoms sound like my partners symptoms and they were caused by whiplash. Glad your MRI etc came back fine. Whiplash symptoms can take up to a year to clear.
