Twenty minutes. later the doctor came in and said you have viral meningitis and sent me home with just some pain meds. I continued to get worse.
On Sunday the squad was called again, back to the ER. They said I had a spinal tap headache and sent me home.
By Monday I prayed my head would just explode. Squad #3. This time I was thrown in a room hooked up to pain meds and they shut the door. After a day in the hospital a nurse came to my room and said, "you’re being discharged". Something about my insurance. I wasn't the type to speak up, back then! I had awesome insurance.
It's been 12 years, over 20 something doctors, countless medications and headaches 24-7. No one will take me seriously and when I say I wasn't treated and the hospital screwed up, I'm completely shut down.
I was in the hospital April 2012 from yes head pain! But new added pain. I now have Chiari malformation! Which nothing can be done till it's almost killing me. Gotta live with that pain also.
Anyway, an infectious disease doctor came in my room. She was whispering and kept looking at the door, I thought that was strange! She told me that my headaches were from not being treated, that the meninges are damaged and since it's been so long this is my life now.
