I contracted hepatitis B at age 17 and contracted viral meningitis at age 20 and age 28. I currently suffer from arthritis and chronic fatigue and have strange pains such as severe pain in one wrist, plantars pain in one foot and currently the pain is in left (dominant) hand between 1st and 2nd fingers. I need to know if my depression and lack of inner motivation (if someone needs or asks me to do something, it restores my energy)and pain can be due to the viruses. Also, after contracting meningitis the 2nd time - from my clients with active TB - I had suffered from shorter bouts of the same symptoms at least 9 times since. I am now 55 years, I also suffer from chronic lower back pain due to injuries incurred at ages 25-26, what a mess I am! Still hopeful though. Thank you for your consideration.
