Meningitis

So my doctor had me come to the ER to test for meningitis. I am terrified. I've googled it as I didn't know much about it, but medical lingo is way over my head. Anyone have any insight or experiences? Words of comfort? Anything?

 I think there are different types of meningitis.  I had spinal meningitis when I was 4 years old, and that is very, very serious.  I think it depends on what kind of meningitis you have.  Please keep us all posted.

Bacterial meningitis can be treated with antibiotics according to the internet.  Viral meningitis cannot be treated with antibiotic and is less serious.  I hope some of this helps.  Hang in there..we are all here for you if you need us.

Thanks for the support ladies! It was a very long night but the meningitis came back negative. Thank goodness! Got through the spinal tap okay. Thanks again for the support!
