A family from Kettering are joining forces with the Meningitis Research Foundation to warn the public that adults are at risk of meningitis, not just adults.
Craig and Melanie Hook are supporting the campaign after Melanie contracted pneumococcal meningitis and septicaemia at the age of 31 in 2003.
Melanie survived but she is paralysed from the chin down and requires help to breath, and blinks to communicate.
These are the possible symptoms for meningitis:
- have a high fever, with cold hands and feet
- vomit and refuse to feed
- feel agitated and not want to be picked up
- become drowsy, floppy and unresponsive
- grunt or breathe rapidly
- have an unusual high-pitched or moaning cry
- have pale, blotchy skin, and a red rash that doesn't fade when a glass is rolled over it
- have a tense, bulging soft spot on their head
- have a stiff neck and dislike bright lights
- have convulsions or seizures
These symptoms can occur in any order and may be symptoms of other illnesses.
The NHS state that 'every suspected case of meningitis should be treated as a medical emergency.'
