Symptoms of Meningitis


Meningitis is an inflammation (swelling) of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. Its symptoms may develop over several hours or over a few days. Bacterial meningitis is serious and can cause death within days without prompt treatment. Delayed treatment also increases the risk of permanent brain damage. Seek immediate medical care if you or someone in your family has these symptoms. #WorldMeningitisDay #symptomsofmeningitis #meningitisawareness
