virus severe aches


Hi, my friend had severe headaches on holiday in August, when we returned we went to docs. As a result he was sent to hospital and they did a scan which didn't show anything. The next day he had a lumber puncture again it was ok apart from higher white blood cells which the doctor said could be signs of virus. His headaches continued and then turned to aches in his neck and now turned to aches/ pains all over. He can just about cope in the day but now at night cannot get comfy to sleep he is in a lot of pain it is nearly 2 months now. We have been to docs regularly and they say it’s a case of seeing it out but he really can’t cope any longer and has been signed off from work. He was a very fit active man and is now a shadow of his former self. What can we do? What could it be? Any ideas for homeopathic remedies or therapy?? PLEASE HELP! Thank-you

He may have viral meningitis. But antibiotics don't work on viruses and generally you have to rest and it will eventually go away on its own. It sounds like they didn't find any bacteria on the lumbar puncture. It takes time to recover from this. Maybe he should get a second opinion since it has been more than a month. If you do see an infectious disease specialist.
