I had viral encephalitis when I was age 12. I had multiply seizures and was induced into a coma to stop them. After that I had to relearn how to walk and talk and have little memory of events prior to infection. Some things such as photos, and conversation will bring back flashes of memories but still to this day at age 29 my memory is in and out about events that happen even now. Throughout my life I have had issues with catching everything around me, colds, strep throat, sinus infections, you name it I seem to catch it, although since the encephalitis I have only had 2 seizures. About 8 months ago I contracted a severe case of EBV (Epstein barr virus ) I am still have problems with extreme fatigue and hearing and vision problems. I begin to wonder if it will ever end of if this is now my life? The mood swings, depression, sleeping, spots, being off balance, is this just all becoming a part of my life now? It has come to a point where I do not work anymore and doctors say hmmmmm...and your ok it will pass, and eat better foods, exercise....I am wondering what I should do? If there are many of us experiencing this why is there no research group to help? Are these symptoms from the EBV or from the viral encephalitis?
