User rating for this question
I have been diagnosed with meningitis (aseptic) I was on viral and bacterial medication for 21 days it ended 5 days ago. My hands, feet, ankles and arms hurt very much (throbbing when I am sitting and hurts to walk on my feet) the veins in my arms and ankles and forehead are all very blue. Is this something I should be concerned about. ( I do still have a Picc line in )
