My brother had bad headache for over a week, light sensitivity and thought it was a headache. He didn't get better.

My dad called the doctors who would not see my brother for 2 weeks and sent a prescription for pain killers for his headache.

It was 2 weeks now since he had a headache and my dad found him unconscious in the bedroom

An ambulance came to get him to hospital, ready to move him to Stoke Hospital, but he passed away as they had him on the trolley.

"... he was laughing and seemed okay even with his headache, if only we knew."

He had meningitis and a brain abscess. He had no rash. We’d even had a bbq and he was laughing and seemed okay even with his headache, if only we knew.
