In brief: Usually nothing
Usually viral meningitis heals without long-term consequences.
Any time the brain and nervous system is inflammed, the pressure can cause pain or even neurological findings - weakness, confusion, numbness, etc. However usually with time, in the case of viral meningitis, these go away when the inflammation goes away.
