Hi, my name is Lisa and I had H Flu Bacterial Meningitis in 1980. I was a little over a year old. I was in a comma for a few weeks. I am now 29 years old and my health is getting worse. Some problems are: Balance problems, loss of feeling and movement in left leg and foot, headaches, chest hurting, tremors and spams, bladder problems and lack of memory, I can only remember snipits of my life- when most people can remember their whole life. I have none. The Dr. first thought I might have Multiple Sclerosis) and when they did a brain MRI I did in fact have white matter lesions. As soon as they found out that I had Meningitis they blame everything on Meningitis. It is very clear that I am getting worse. Is there any one that has these same issues?
Thanks for your support, Lisa
