Meningitis

Has anyone ever had viral meningitis? My 2month old daughter just spent 3 days in the hospital with it. Now I am showing symptoms and its horrible. There is no cure you just have to let it run its course. I have an excruciating headache for 3 days now. It is horrible. Any advice on helping ease the symptoms?

Bacterial can be cured...viral is normally not dangerous and is caused by a VIRUS which cannot be cured anywhere. It is just left to run its course. It is no more severe than a common cold it just affects a different part of the body.

How are both of you doing now? I didn't have the viral type, but rather the bacterial type when I was a toddler. By what I read online the only things that can help you are over-the-counter painkillers and rest. But you probably already know that.
