Michigan workers compensation lawyer provides update on meningitis outbreak linked to steroid injections.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is coordinating a multistate investigation of fungal meningitis among patients who received an epidural steroid injection with a potentially contaminated product.

CDC reports 28 cases and 3 deaths in Michigan.

The CDC is recommending that patients with concerns should find out if they received the potentially contaminated medication. The physician who performed the spinal injection should be the first point of contact.

The CDC says that patients who have had an epidural steroid injection since May 21, 2012, and have any of the following symptoms, should talk to their doctor as soon as possible:

• New or worsening headache
• Fever
• Sensitivity to light
• Stiff neck
• New weakness or numbness in any part of your body
• Slurred speech
• Increased pain, redness or swelling at your injection site
