Meningitis in your words

Jeanette's story

  • Categories: Bacterial meningitis
  • Age: Adult 25-59
  • Outcome: Recovery with after effects
  • After effects: Hearing problems
I was diagnosed with Mollarets Meningitis back in 2020. I have had battled this since my first episode in 2019. Since then I have had four episodes. Being so rare to have it more than once doctors do not know how to treat or care for the long term effects this sickness has caused over time.

Severe headaches, confusion, brain fog, muscle and joint pain and constant fatigue. Since 2019 I have been diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and constant migraines so far. I also have some slight hearing loss.

From being very active and physically fit to having no energy and constant pain this sickness has caused long term effects that keep me constantly going to different medical professionals for answers.
