    • My husband suffered last week - we are at day 6.  I am still extremely worried but reading articles on here gives me hope for the future.  Thank you everybody.
    • Thanks all again for taking time to reply, does restore faith in human nature.   Daffodil, that is comforting ( in a strange way) to know someone else has a blood taste in there mouth during their recovery. I have booked appointment with GP now, but earliest I can be seen is next Wednesday, so will hopefully will know more then.   Susan yes you are right  I probably shouldn't have used that picture but was being lazy and just stole my Facebook photo Doh!!! Anyhow I not that silly to be doing anything more strenuous than walking at the moment.I also agree a negative angiogram only infers to a venous nature but it is not proven. I was careful in my original post ,to say no cause was found not that there wasn't one. Good advice about telephone consultation never even crossed my mind..☺   Thanks best wishes to all Philip
    • Hi Filfoot   Maybe you shouldn't have used the gym pic as a profile pic as some seem to be wrongly assuming you're back lifting weights!   I had a lot of upper back, neck and shoulder pain around the same time-frame as you after my NASAH. I mentioned it to my consultant at my 2 month follow up check and he said it was the blood dispersing. Also had a lot of weird head sensations at that time and episodes of dizziness/feeling faint.   You probably are just experiencing normal recovery symptoms but I would not worry about being a nuisance to your GP - I think we are all entitled to a bit of extra care after a scary medical experience. Ask for a telephone consultation with your GP if some symptoms are really worrying you.   Hi Frmertd   I don't think the cause of angiogram negative SAH has ever been definitively established although a venous source is often postulated.   When I asked my consultant in hospital, after my angiogram, what caused my haemorrhage he actually just shrugged. I think I was feeling too spaced out and elated at not having a bleeding aneurysm at that time to question that it wasn't much of an answer, but when I got out of hospital and did a bit of research I realised that it was probably the most honest answer.   Best wishes to both of you in your recovery. Susie
    • Good luck using the badge Daff, a nice gentle prompt to folks to be thoughtful. I've not seen anyone using them though I don't get into London as often as I would like. Look forward to hearing how you get on.
    • Welcome to the site.  I am also one of the many men who frequent this site.  This site is for survivors, care-givers, and other supporters regardless of their sex.  It has been of such value and support for me and I hope it provides the same for you and your husband.   Best wishes   Chris
