Stiffness of the neck and back occur because meningitis spurs the inflammation of the membranes (or meninges) that encase the brain and spinal cord. It’s this swelling that causes the discomfort and stiffness. If you experience a sudden fever and headache along with a stiff neck, you could have a form meningitis and you should seek treatment and testing to confirm or rule out the cause.

If you have an unexplained stiff neck and some other symptoms, see your doctor. There are several types of meningitis, each ranging in severity from mild to potentially fatal, and you can endure severe complications if it goes unchecked and untreated.

Feeling thankful that littlest niece Gracie is fighting meningitis and winning 🙏💪 amazing how quickly things can be put in perspective. Very lucky they caught it early and my sister trusted her instincts. Don't wait for a rash, know the signs and symptoms http://www.meningitis.org/symptoms #meningitisawareness

Last month our daughter, Giselle 15mths. Had a non blanching rash(a rash that doesn't disappear when under pressure.) and temp 38. We took her to A&E. we were seen quickly and they said they would treat her for sepsis/meningitis. A virus can also cause this rash. But even they can't tell the difference. So they gave her IV antibiotics. They did bloods, you have to wait for the blood cultures. We acted quickly and took her straight to children's A&E. we have a local urgent care, but there isn't a children doc there. It's worth the extra time so you are in the best place. Her blood cultures came back clear after 48hrs. She had a shitty few days but better safe than sorry! My advice don't hesitate it's not worth the risk. #meningitis #sepsisawareness #meningitisawareness #gisellebobs #littlelady

Meningitis can cause extreme light sensitivity (or photophobia), in which squinting, eye pain, difficulty with vision in sunlight or under bright lights and migraine-like headaches result. •
•
•
• Light sensitivity is considered a common early sign of meningitis, so if it comes on suddenly, you should look for other signs and symptoms and see your doctor before it worsens.
•
•
•Your vision could become blurry from meningitis because the optic nerve can swell. In most severe cases of meningitis, partial or full blindness can occur in one or both eyes, with no chance of reversing the effect. •
•
•
•Sometimes, the optic nerve is  damaged beyond repair, which is another reason why it is important to get a diagnosis and treatment plan as soon as possible.

About 11 years ago I became ill with meningitis. Since, I’ve become an advocate for immunization and meningitis awareness.After leaving the Meningitis Foundation 3 years ago, I created Meningitis News aims to disseminate news and educate the public about meningitis. Meningitis News is an ongoing series of interviews, media updates and alerts surrounding cases and meningitis outbreaks. Meningitis News is a weekly broadcast that delivers information on meningitis related to outbreaks, vaccinations, medical conditions and other important subjects related to meningitis.

5 years ago today at 22.47 a doctor and nurse sat with Stephen and I, and told us to prepare for the worst, being told that they were treating her for suspected meningitis and if Jessica didn't start fighting and responding to the medication she would die! Words that no parent should ever have to hear. The following 12 hrs were crucial and a living nightmare, our world felt like it was falling apart, but thankfully she responded and fought like the warrior she is. 
Test results came back to reveal that Jessica was battling viral meningitis! After 5 gruelling days in hospital we were allowed home, with lots of follow up appointments. We were then warned that Jessica could have long lasting effects with her immune system, sight, hearing, balance, speech and that's just to name a few. As time has gone on we have and do face many daily challenges but that will never stop our little girl from fighting and achieving.

So Please please please read up and learn the signs of meningitis, don't wait for the rash as that can often be the last sign to appear, if in doubt seek advice straight away.

A year ago yesterday I left paul and aiden in bed and went to work at 7.30am.  By 10.30am paul was at my work saying there was something not right with aiden by 11am an ambulance was at my work by 11.30 amambulance had gone as there was nothing serious going on (completely not the ambulances fault meningitis is very hard to notice at the beginning ) by 12 aiden was having a convulsions in a resus unit and by 1pm he was covered head to toe in a rash which would latter turn out to be meningitis and septicaemia and he would spend the next 72 hours fighting for his life. This is the cold hard facts of what meningitis does to children and adults.

Hello! Let me introduce you to the gorgeous Frank, pictured here on our Cloud baby blanket. He has already fought a huge fight after contracting meningitis at 3 days old. You can read Franks story at his Mum's blog @overatkates where she is raising awareness of this cruel illness and funds for Kings College Hospital who saved his life. I'm warning you, it's a bit of a tear jerker 😢

Guys if you have any of these symptoms at any time - don't delay - get looked at. 
I woke Tuesday morning with what I thought was a really bad migraine, over the course of the day I got worse and Wednesday morning ended up being sent to hospital where they confirmed yesterday that I have viral meningitis. Luckily it's only mild - although if this is mild , god help the people who get it severe !! I have been ordered to rest which means I will not be working until Monday. I know this is going to put me way behind on orders and I'll be playing catch up all next week but I can't help it ! 
Please make yourself aware of the symptoms - I had no idea there was such thing as viral meningitis ! #meningitisawareness #nothesymptoms #needtorest

So important. A family friend's life was changed forever due to getting meningitis when she was in college. 
Kids need to be vaccinated at age 11 & 15. Be aware.

Another very common sign of meningitis is a severe headache that lasts long and won't go away. Headaches are considered one of the three most common symptoms of meningitis(along with fever and stiff neck). •
• ●
 Children, youths and adults are likely to get a headache from meningitis. But newborns and children under the age of 2 don't typically  experience this symptom
• ●
The type of headache you have is important too as not all headaches are the same. With meningitis, the pain associated with your headache would feel different than other headaches you've experienced

Me and Tim came up with this slightly crazy plan just before Christmas 2016, it was a super quick turn around for us to get here. Tim was in the middle of changing jobs and was able to stick these weeks in as he started his new job, Sam was tentatively on board with plans to quit his job to take some time to see the world before starting his masters in London, Tom dropped everything without much hesitation at all at the idea of a new adventure. Everyone was primed and by the time we pressed 'book' Sam had his P45 at the ready, Tim was in a dream job with all the leeway he needed and Tom, as ever, had already started planning. I took this trip to push myself physically, yeah, but ultimately it's about the experiences I can capture. I wanted to be able to push myself creatively all the while trying to stay alive in a country where a lot is pitted against you. So far I've filmed pretty much everything we've been through and I cannot wait to put this together as a film. Whether I did a good job of capturing this all will be down to you to decide but it's been a wicked challenge making sure every moment that matters is seen through a lens as well as my own two eyes. Tim made sure we all did this for a great cause as well and we've raised money for Meningitis Research Foundation along the way, please go and support the cause, Tim almost died of it as a baby and we all loved that big bumbling idiot so go donate!

This was a pic of me soon after #surviving #meningococcal #meningitis. I was one of the #lucky ones. #Earlydiagnosis is key. It can happen to #AnyoneAnywhereAnytime 
Meningitis is an inflammation of the fluid and membranes that cover the #brain and #spinal cord. Every year over 1 million people worldwide are affected.
Meningitis can be hard to recognise. Bacterial meningitis causes +-170,000 deaths globally every year.
Even with prompt diagnosis and treatment, approximately 10- 20% of patients will die within 24 to 48 hours and around 10-30% will sustain permanent damage and disability such as deafness, brain damage, learning difficulties, seizures and loss of limbs (due to septicaemia). Many people don’t know the warning signs or that many types of meningitis are vaccine-preventable. For more information visit www.comomeningitis.org

Sorry, but this is another brutally honest post.
So for a while I have been struggling to keep it together, put on a brace face, juggle commitments and be a mum. While there have been amazingly happy moments, they are often swiftly followed by guilt, anxiety and sadness. 
Today I asked for help to ease the anxiety and to help me relax a bit. It's a short term fix, and I'm looking at going back to see my counsellor, but recognising I'm not ok is a big deal and accepting any help wouldn't have happened a year ago, never mind accepting medical help. 
But today is the first time in a while I'm not clenching my teeth or have a headache, it feels good. 
Hope that being honest might help me move forward, and show others suffering from any kind of problem that asking for help is not a failure. #meningitis #meningitisawareness #grief #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #honesty #struggling

Baby Cohen lost his battle with meningitis at just 17 days old. But since his death his mum, Laura, has done something amazing... She's had his ashes put into a teddy bear so her family can continue to make adventures with Cohen the bear 🐻

Yesterday was a tough day. I had a huge wobble and really struggled to pick myself back up. But I did eventually. 
You see I follow this woman and she is a Meningitis survivor, now olympic medalist. 
Seeing this picture yesterday triggered some serious guilt about Claudia and whether I had fought hard enough to save her. Could she have gone on to something like this despite how the disease would have left her. I had to force myself to go over every second in the hospital and remind myself that she was gone before we gave up fighting. 
I really never think I will be ok with how my baby died, how she was consumed in no time at all and disappeared in front of our eyes. I struggle to hold onto the real memories of her.

today is meningitis awareness day, no one really pays attention to it because it's rare but it's a life threatening disease that anyone can come upon. when I was 10 months old I developed the disease and the first doctor said there was nothing wrong with me but I couldn't hold my head up anymore and so my grandma got a second opinion and turns out I had it. Meningitis is an airborne disease and can be spread by eating off another person, kissing, etc and is not tested enough and a lot of people die because no one takes it serious. It is not tested on newborns. 1 in 10 of those who develop meningitis will die and 3 in 5 adolescent survivors on meningococcal disease experience significant physical and mental disabilities. Meningitis disease can turn deadly in 24 hours. In the last 20 years ONE MILLION people have died from this disease. please share this to educate others on the disease. it'll be very helpful to someone. #meningitissurvivor #meningitisawareness #share

Say no to self medication. Run tests before treating. 
Early detection can save your life. So the earlier you rush patients to the hospital the better for them. 
Avail yourselves of vaccines in health centres close to you, this is a sure way of prevention. 
Sharing of personal effects and utensils can cause transmission  of the organism. 
Let's spread the word and Save a Life today.

Today is #WorldMeningitisDay ! 
My amazing son Gavin nearly died eight years ago from meningococcal disease. He was only six months old when his entire life became marked by this devastating and often fatal disease! He has endured over 3 dozen surgeries to correct the damage #meningitis has taken on his entire body ! He is one of the lucky ones... A survivor ! So many have passed within hours of symptoms presenting. 
To Learn more about Gavin's story, the signs and symptoms of meningitis, and education on the 2 vaccines available , go to www.NMAUS.org 
And keep up with Gavin's journey at Peace Bomb Gavin on FB!
