My mom was diagnosed with viral meningitis yesterday. She had all the symptoms. What is treatment?
What's the question?: Viral meningitis presents with headache, sometimes sensitivity to light or sound, nausea, vomiting, fever, stiff neck, malaise, sometimes mental changes and the spinal fluid shows findings which are not compatible with bacterial meningitis.

Joint pain headaches always tired loss of appetite what's wrong with me? My mom wants to get me tested for meningitis is this a possibility?
Very unlikely: Only rare causes of meningitis cause the milder symptoms you have. Vast majority of cases cause severe headache and fever (the kind of headache that sends you to the ER).

Meningitis?: If you had Meningococcal meningitis you would be unlikely to be asking questions. This is a rapidly progressive and devastating illness with a high mortality rate. Sounds like a viral uri. If you develop fever, nausea and vomiting, stiff neck, sensitivity to light and sound, blood spots over your body and you cannot stand up because your blood pressure has fallen, then you might have meningitis.

While in hospital a month ago my mom received several steroid shots. Now it's a fungal mengitis outbreak. Does this devolp quickly how do u know if u have it or at risk?
Check with hospital: The fungal infections emanated from a contaminated batch of a specially compounded steroid/analgesic preparation. Your hospital will know whether or not they purchased and used this particular compound. If your mom is not ill now, it is very unlikely that she will become so. But never hurts to check.
