Thank you for posting your query.
Yes, I agree it is difficult to pinpoint from where you contracted the meningitis
However, epidural injection could be a source of infection, which can led to meningitis. Difficult to prove though.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
