She had viral meningits and still has headaches as a result of the illness. She was diagosed on March 18th and our daughter still has headaches and the diamox really has not made much difference to ease them. We have an appt back with the consultant in 2wks time. Her day to day life has changed dramatically because of this, not to mention the the weight loss,fatigue she endures everyday. Just curious as to know will her headaches ever fully go so that she can go back to being the bubbly out-going daughter that she used to be. Also she has had 2 lumber punctures done the 1st to diagnose the viral meningits and the 2nd to check the pressure in her head. The doctors said normal pressure was 25 but our daughters was 32. In fairness the headaches eased slightly after the lumber puncture but within 3 days they were worse than ever. I hope I have given as much info to help with a reply to my query. Thank you...
My 15yr old daughter was on 125g twice daily for 1st wk & 250g twice daily 4 2wks & now 625g daily?
