Just wondering does any one on here know anything about meningoencephalitis. I was hospitalised fo 54 days with it.
Hello @clodaghpower, welcome to Connect. I am not familiar with meningoencephalitis but did find a good article describing the condition in ScienceDirect.
How are you doing since being released from the hospital? Do your doctors have any ongoing or follow up treatments for you?
Little is know of the condition here in Ireland. Myself n another person I think. It was only discovered in America in 2016 . I've had lumbar puncture s . An MRI scan n a Pet scan . On lots of medication steroids da r decreasing every month . They want to do another MRI scan soon . Lost the use of my legs . Back walking again . N attending physio. Symptoms started off as flu then vomiting. Attended ER 3 times to be sent home . Was told it was different things . On the fourth time I was kept . Was halucianting cant remember much . Was ventilated and in intensive care .

Another tool you might find useful to find medical and research type information is Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.com/). I did a search using Google Scholar and here is the link to the search results. Hopefully you will find some more information here.
No Trader Joe's here in Ireland. But I'll try find out about the ginger turmeric tea .
