Come into a+e with a temperature of 38.6 seen me straight away as was in hersterix crying with pain. Triage took me round to a bed and doctor's put me straight on a drip and gave me morphine and codeine to relax mey also gave me oxygen to reduce the pain with my head ache. Bloods come back abnormal which shown I had a swelling.on my brain and that I had a virus in my body. So after that they suspected meningitis on my brain with the symptoms I was having an the pains.and.the abnormal bloods. In the end they said I was to better.to be having meningitis and diagnosed me with server tonsillitis and prescribed me with clarithromycin 500g for 7 day's.
