Mesotherapy for Meningitis

Meningitis is one of those conditions that infection root cause but many symptoms, some of which can be treated with mesotherapy shots that contain a combination of nutrients, anti-inflammatories and pain relievers.

Meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes (also called meninges) and cerebrospinal fluid that surround brain and spinal cord. The inflammation is usually caused by an infection. Older adults also tend to have a higher incidence of meningitis than do young children thanks to the development of vaccines.

The Causes of Meningitis

The cause of most cases of meningitis is a viral infection, but bacterial and fungal infections also can lead to meningitis. Bacterial meningitis is generally much more serious than viral meningitis, and immediate treatment is necessary.

Viral meningitis is usually milder and is caused by enteroviruses. These are the same viruses that cause the stomach flu. This type of meningitis usually clears up in about ten days.

The most common signs and symptoms of viral meningitis are rash, sore throat, joint aches and a severe headache.  Mesotherapy can help treat the joint pain, headaches and skin eruptions that seem to stick around in sufferers long after the disease seems to be out of the acute phase.

Chronic meningitis is the ongoing form and occurs when the brain or spinal linings are invaded by slow-growing organisms. The symptoms are headaches, fever, vomiting and mental cloudiness.

Meningitis can also result from noninfectious causes, such as drug allergies, some types of cancer and inflammatory diseases such as lupus.  Fungal meningitis is also
Symptoms of Meningitis

It's easy to mistake the early signs and symptoms of meningitis for the flu. They may develop over a period of one or two days and typically include -

  • A high fever
  • Severe headache
  • Vomiting or nausea with headache
  • Confusion, or difficulty concentrating
  • Inability to hold eye contact
  • Swelling
  • Seizures
  • Sleepiness
  • Stiff neck
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Lack of appetite and
  • Skin rash
Take a person to the hospital immediately if the person looks pale, has ice cold hands and feet and severe leg pain.

The person who has had this may also require treatments for brain swelling, shock, convulsions or dehydration. Infected sinuses or mastoids may need to be drained. Any fluid that has accumulated between the brain and the membranes that surround it may also need to be drained or surgically removed.

The bacterial form of the disease can prove fatal in a matter of days. Seek medical care right away if you or anyone in your family has any signs or symptoms.  The symptoms can linger for months and any swollen joints or aches and pains can be treated with the help of mesotherapy for supportive care.
