I have symps of meningitis and tested neg for flu. Symps not worsening or going away, but I teach kinder. Get further testing or teach Monday?
Doc there makes cal: Obviously, if you feel you have something contagious then, you should present yourself to medical attention for diagnosis and clearance or medical justification to be off from your job. Nobody on a telemedicine network could possibly tell you whether you were in a contagious state or not since we cannot examine you physically.See 1 more doctor answer

Two and a half weeks ago I was diagnosed with the flu. Few days later with a virus. Few days later possibility of meningitis no true answer. Help.?
Yes: Assuming that you are healthy, there should be no problem in getting multiple vaccines at one time. Vaccines contain antigens, which train your immune system to fight off those infections should you encounter them in the future. Your body is able to handle many antigens at the same time.
Saw immune, ID, hema., neuro. Labs all ok, told I should be ok now, 6 mos. Ago recovered meningitis- still weak w/ flu aches. What can they be missing?
My opinion: Unlikely your doctor team is missing anything, as can take a long time to recover from meningitis. Although typically full recovery by 6 months, have seen lingering symptoms even out to 10-12 months, but almost invariably there is a slow steady improvement.
Diagnosed with mono & flu. My neck is so stiff & shoulders too. It hurts so bad. Headaches & very tired. Is this from mono or could it be meningitis?
Call your doctor: This is a question that is tough to answer online. Please call your doctor right away, and let him/her know how you're doing, and what your concerns are. If you cannot reach the doc, seek medical attention sooner than later at an er or walk-in center. I know you've been waiting a while for an answer; hope your? Was answered and you're on the mend at this point.
Is bacterial meningitis the result of the flu gone awry? Why does it start with flu-like symptoms?
Normal to still have bouts of flu-like body aches/fatigue where im in bed for days- five months after meningitis recovery?
My 3 year old has flu. He complains of severe headache 4 3 days and today he says his neck and back hurt. Just the flu or meningitis?
Unlikely: No deaths have been reported with nasal vaccine. In large series there were no severe side effects. There are few reports of meningitis and even fewer of encephalitis that were reported after introduction of the vaccine. These complications are listed in the package insert and the fda web site. Considering the huge number of children and adults vaccinated, these complications are unlikely.
Been feeling mild flu like symptoms for last few days. Starting today- moderate stiff neck and mild headache but no fever. Meningitis?
Still have bouts of flu-like body aches/fatigue where im in bed for days- five months after meningitis recovery. Which specialist do I see?
Internist: If you have truly recovered from the meningitis you then can see your primary doctor. You may need an additional workup for something else. Best wishes.
Still feel weak w/ flu-ish body aches regularly after meningitis recovery 6 mos ago. Seen ALL specialists with blood work ups, normal. What can I do?
Emphasize fitness: Be careful from dietary perspective and avoid inflammatory items such as gluten, corn, and MSG, aspartame, nitrites. Work with a physical therapist and devise an appropriate home exercise program. Contact a psychologist if your emotions are impaired. Realize that the recovery time varies. You will feel better soon if the above is instituted.
