My fiancee had suffered from viral meningitis last year. She was treated in hospital, spent there 10 days and was released to home. Since then she sometimes (once every 3-4 weeks) has episodes of head pain and neck pain/stiffness, which she usually helps with paracetamol + codeine (500mg + 30 mg does the trick).
When she catches a cold, these symptoms usually come back stronger.
My question is - is there any kind of treatment/therapy that would make these symptoms go away? Or will she be dependant on painkillers for the rest of her life?
