I am a 54 year old woman who has had viral meningitis/encephalitis twice within 10 years. Both times my speech was affected (jumbled). I had an MRI two and a half months before the onset of my second illness. The MRI revealed 2 nonspecific T2 hyperintense foci within the posterior parietal/occipital white matter. I went back for a follow up MRI the other night, again the same T2 hyperintense foci are present. I am concerned that this might be what is contributing to the meningitis/encephalitis. Just wondering if anyone has any advice?
