Hi all...at the age of 46 (5 years ago) I had West Nile Virus that progressed to Meningitis. I had all of the head, eye, nervous system symptoms. During the acute phase my lower legs also ached, like you ache if you have a bad case of flu. Nothing would relieve that ache. Years later I do have some long term effects often mentioned here, but those come and go depending on my stress level and if I'm exhausted. The leg ache however is still with me and is constant. I have had it for all these years. It's there when I wake up and all day. Exercise or rest doesn't help any. Vicodin takes the edge off. Does anyone have any similar problem and have you found a cause or solution? I wonder if it could be nerve damage. I had a brain MRI 2 years ago that was normal. Thank you so much.
