In brief: Meningitis

Long-term complications of meningitis can include memory loss, residual headache, learning difficulties, and weakness to name a few.
If you have recurrent cases of meningitis, you could have a condition called "mollaret's meningitis". For more information, talk to your doctor and visit: http://www.Meningitisfoundationofamerica.Org/templates/content-view/92/index.Html.
