Please remember that while meningitis can be scary & sometimes deadly if you have a compromised immune system, do not go in for treatment, etc. It is actually quite common & a lot of people develop it without even knowing. I know it's easier said than done as far as not worrying, though. I'm glad he is seaking treatment!

Generally it is viral & is caused by another viral infection & will run it's course. The main concern is dehydration.

If it is bacterial, it can be treated with antibiotics. With viral, it just has to run it's course.

We just had to deal with this at the beginning of the year. A friends son developed viral meningitis after having a viral URI (upper respiratory infection). The bad thing about it is that they had to do a spinal tap to find out what kind of meningitis is. The concern for my daughter when she was sick was more about her asthma than the actual meningitis!

jcc64 replied: My thoughts are with you and your family. I know meningitis is scary, but I think as long as it's diagnosed early and treated appropriately, the chances for a complete recovery are excellent. He's young and otherwise healthy- all things in his favor.
Good luck.
