What Are the Stages of Meningitis?

What are the stages of meningitis?

There are three stages of the meningitis. They are infection, development of symptoms, and resolution by treatment or death.

The three stages often happen quickly.

  • Stage 1-2. Several days after you get infected, you start to have some symptoms. But in some cases where people got the disease by organisms that grow slowly, symptoms may appear a month after you caught meningitis.
  • Stage 2-3. Usually, if your disease isn’t severe, you get better within 48-72 hours after you received treatment. You may fully recover a couple of weeks later. But people with severe meningitis may suffer hearing and vision loss, permanent brain damage, and cognitive impairment.
