The problematic condition Encephalitis simply means an inflammation of the brain. While that may not be considered a huge problem overall, it is actually quite troubling. Especially if it begins to worsen. The real trouble with it is knowing what actually caused it to begin with. Encephalitis is often attributed to concussion symptoms. However, it’s also caused by various viruses or infections.
One of the many is the herpes-related encephalitis condition. While caused by Herps, it is still rare in people who have it today due to the fact that most of the world has some strain of Herpes in them. This can cause severe disorientation, speech abnormalities, memory loss, convulsions, altered reflexes, hallucinations, confusion, and partial paralysis. It is quite clear that a person with a severe version of this could come across as zombie-like to the average person.
