I'm a victim/ survivor of fungal meningitis.
I received 8 injection in my lower back on July 17, 2012 a day I will never forget. After getting them I was feeling like I was coming down with the flu but never did. I was in and out of the ER and doctor's office. I couldn't do anything during the day the bright light was too much, noise gave me bad, bad headaches.
I called the doctor's office where I received the 8 injection. My Doctor said not to worry it happens sometime.
Then came Oct 3, 2012 I turned on the ABC nightly news and there it was, an outbreak of fungal meningitis, if you had injections for pain in your back call your doctor or Health Department . That was the longest night of my life, seconds were hours.
I called my doctor he said I had nothing to worry about. So I called health departments. They said to go to the ER. I did.
