I would be interested to hear from anyone who has developed severe sleep disorder/chronic insomnia
post meningitis. Which I had twice as a child and again at 30.

I am sorry to hear that your friend has been diagnosed with cerebrosclerosis which refers to scar tissue on the brain which has come about as a result of the initial infection that your friend had when she had meningitis. Many people recover from meningitis with no after effects, but others who perhaps had a more severe form of the disease may suffer from brain damage as a result. Damage to the brain can present itself in many ways, from poor motor control and paralysis of part of the body to epilepsy, learning difficulties, poor memory and poor co-ordination skills to name a few. Some after effects are apparent as soon as a child recovers from meningitis, but others, such as poor concentration or memory may only become apparent when a child reaches school age. For support with the after effect of meningitis call the helpline (UK) 080 8800 3344
