Meningitis is a life threatening condition involving an inflammation in the thin protective membranes (meninges) that line the brain and spinal cord. Meningitis can be caused by either a bacterial or viral infection. Bacterial meningitis is more dangerous and is typically caused by meningococcal bacteria. The most common meningitis symptoms include sudden high fever, headache, stiffness in the neck muscles, mental confusion, and nausea.  Coordination problems, intolerance towards loud sounds (phonophobia) and to bright light (photophobia) have also been reported in certain cases. With viral meningitis, the infection may start in the upper respiratory tract. It can even start off with other conditions like mumps, measles, herpes, or influenza before leading to viral meningitis. The characteristic meningitis rash, which is often associated with bacterial meningitis, isn't seen in viral meningitis.
 
The diagnosis of meningitis is done by a procedure called lumbar puncture where a needle is inserted into the spinal cord and a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is extracted for medical examination. Culturing of the virus is difficult and hence diagnosis of viral meningitis is done indirectly by observing the elevated levels of WBCs, glucose, and protein in the CSF.
 
The aim of the treatment for viral meningitis is primarily to alleviate symptomatic discomforts like fever, nausea, or headaches. The infection is brought under control with antibiotics and anti-viral or steroidal drugs. Meningitis can at times result in various long-term consequences like epilepsy, seizures, fatigue, hearing, and sight problems. Providing help with natural healing methods along with medical treatment is crucial, especially in the recovery stage.
