July last year I was rushed to hospital with suspected viral meningitis, I had all the usual symptoms- headache, nausea, temperature and I remained in hospital for a couple of weeks however my recolections are few due to being so unwell. I was discharged from hospital three weeks later even though I still felt so ill.
The exact diagnosis of what I had was not confirmed because the lumbar puncture that they performed was 'unconclusive' and was later found to be lost. A repeat lumbar puncture performed some months later was clear.
Since being discharged then I have had this constant pressure in my head, which eventually becomes painfull and my vision has become disjointed often taking a while to focus. I often feel dizzy and in a world of my own. When the symtoms become more severe I tend to become very anxious and panicstricken.
I have seen a few neurologists and had every test under the sun, CT,MRI, Blood etc. I have been prescribed amytriptaline which helps to calm me down when the symtoms become more severe but I do not feel that it is doing anything to combat the underlying cause of the pressure. The neurologist is now treating me as a migraine sufferer, but after being out of hospital for over a year I do not feel any better.
Do these symptoms seem to consistent with migraine- if so can anyone suggest any ways to help
