My main question is does anyone know anything that would cause a person to get viral meningitis more than once?
Ok, let me elaborate, I am a 26 year old female. I first got viral meningitis in July 2007. Ever since then I have had horrible headaches (constant headache, never goes away). Since then I have also had several issues with what some thought to have been mini strokes: weakness and tingling in left side of body (started with leg), confusion, vision problems. There was no evidence of stroke and doctors do not know why I am having these problems. Now my left leg is very weak and will just give out on me while I am walking. I have fallen down the stairs twice in the past 2 months. I have started using a cane to try and prevent serious injury. Now last week I went to the doctor again because my headaches have increased and wanted to know if something else was going on. They did another lumbar puncture and found out that I again have viral meningitis. My doctor is not sure why I would get meningitis again within a year and a half of already having it. I was wondering if with all the problems I have listed above anyone has any ideas of what could be wrong, or any other testing I could have done to see what was wrong. I have had many many MRI's and CT's of the brain, and an MRI of the lower back. The only thing that has shown up is a bulging disk in my lower back and a small cyst on my brain, but the radiologist believes that they are both of no clinical significance to what is wrong with me. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, because I am out of ideas of what to do, and so is my doctor, he is also researching why i might have meningitis again. Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
