I heard New drugs for Remylination are available now...Is it true?
Can they help my gf who's suffering from spasm and weakness after meningitis?

The great toe is the most important one, as it is essential for walking. If he has fever, or the redness is 'streaking' up his foot, he should be seen sooner.
