Meningitis is what?

Meningitis is inflammation of the thin tissue that surrounds the brain and spinal cord, called the meninges. There are several types of meningitis.

ah, ha, a Eureka moment of my own. I just returned from a doctors’ visit up yonder in Minnesota.

My recall of what they told me goes like this-

Me: I get headaches.
Them: Do you take NSAIDs?

Me: Yes.
Them. Beware, you may build up both an addiction and a lessening of effectiveness. Try not to take them everyday.
Them: Hydrate. You have to hydrate. Drink more water.

Me: OK, What about the headache?
Them: Where is it located?
Me: Everywhere.

The specialist: It is very common for the IVIG to cause inflammation of the meninges. Drink more water.
