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.

In brief: Usually none

Viral meningitis usually resolves without any problem. Rare complications may be persistent headache, cranial nerve pansies, hearing problems, weakness, mental status changes.
