I was diagnosed with VM 8weeks ago, and hospitalised for 10 days, the strain was herpes/shingles virus, IV drips for whole 10 days and then a course of oral tablets for 2 weeks. After 4 weeks I returned to work on reduced hours, however after 3 weeks I was re-admitted to hospital with the same symptoms as before only this time my neck was stiffer and had sensitivity to light. All tests came back negative, and was sent home with painkillers. I still have severe headaches and a stiff neck and cronic daytime fatigue, as well as hot flushes both day and night, is this normal? has anyone else had reoccuring symptoms? How long does go on far? I find the whole illness very frustrating as I have good days and bad days. How long have people been off work?
