Long-term effects of meningitis ?
I just saw a neurologist who performed a complete exam. I have tingling and numbness sensations in my face and head, stabbing pains in my temples, tinnitus and have always had memory problems. These symptoms have been increasing in intensity over the past 3 years. They are made worse or better by the positioning of my neck. They are made much worse by riding in a vehicle over 40 mph. I had a severe case of meningitis at 9 mths old. The neurologist said that the symptoms are an after-effect of the meningitis. I just find it hard to believe that it would take 52 years for these abnormalities to develop. Could this be true??
