Hi, I was diagnosed with varicella zoster meningitis on 9th August after nearly 2 weeks of constant symptoms.
I went to A and E on 27th July and was seen by a doctor who took bloods, they discharged me with severe migraine. I returned the next day as I was discharged on the basis if it got worse return to hospital, so I did the following day. I was seen, given more medication and discharged with severe migraine.
I made an appointment with my local GP on 5th of August as I still didn’t feel any better and at this point had tried several different types of medication. I then had an appointment with Specsavers for my eyesight to see if this was causing the migraine, from there I was referred back to my GP with a letter from Specsavers as there was something wrong with my right eye, as I had a bleed behind it. I took the letter back to the GP the Same day and was told to go to A and E straight away. I was kept in hospital with several bloods taken, CT scan which came back normal,
