  1. Hi Dave I get terrible headaches sometimes horrible xxx I am glad you are speaking to someone in neurology however whilst you are waiting drink plenty of water and relax xxx Hope the headaches ease soon xxx
  2. Everytime weather changes I get dizzy headaches pressure and nauseous even 15yrs later xxx You get used to it xxx
  3. Hi boom welcome to btg xxx I had two bleeds one at about 22 another at 23 when I had the scan and was told there was an old bleed in there aswell turned out there was 2 aneurysms had the one that ruptured at 23 clipped first then the other xxx Now the other things 1 memory problem with both at beginning now it's mainly short term memory 15yrs later 2 Confidence and self esteem had none which is why I stayed where I wasn't happy but it's back now I take the kids on holiday alone to pubs for meals and out on day trips. 3 where/what your doing with your life does come back for me 5 years ago 4 I hated going out wouldn't go anywhere especially alone and I go out with friends and look at 2 5 the old me did die 15yrs ago but I prefer the new me now I didn't to begin with I hated her for years but now i am happy 6 I don't drink as when I was blue lighted to hospital they were treating me with hangover from 7th to 11th September with delayed treatment till 13th as hospital needed proper scans so put me off alcohol. I go out though and still have a great time you don't need alcohol to enjoy yourself Anyway hope things get better for you and keep us updated on how you are doing xxx
  4. Hi there welcome to btg I have had 2 children since but I had aneurysms and they were both clipped in your case I would definitely listen to the Drs xxx
  5. Physio no need to say anymore they think they know everything mine told me you never had a sah just a little aneurysm I took my notes haven't even tried to count all the pages there is lots xxx I was improving six seven years later and still am 15yrs later so never listen to what they say xxx
  6. Sorry you are still suffering I still get headaches and dizzyness after 15yrs but not as bad xxx You need to go back to your Dr and tell them the medication isn't working try white tiger balm (speak to your Dr first) but I just rub some on my head and the pain goes xxx Dizzyness maybe ask your Dr to give you some tablets for labyrinthitis that may be causing your problems (but the tablets mine prescribed could be used for different dizzyness problems) xxx Anyway hope they give you something to help xxx
  7. Steve hope your feeling better soon xxx In my early days it sometimes used to take me a week to recover from a full day rest and drink water xxx
  8. Hi Laura good to see you hope you are well xxx
  9. Keith lovely to hear from you hope you are well xxx
  10. Paul I cannot imagine what you must be feeling now I am so sorry for your loss xxx Lin R.I.P
  11. Paul I hope lin is getting better already xxx
  12. Welcome to btg kerryn hope things keep improving at the rate they are but don't be alarmed if recovery slows down or you seem to be going backwards because that does happen in the first few months xxx Please keep us updated with how you are getting on xxx
  13. Welcome to btg Jenn xxx It's early days for your husband day five he is doing exceptionally well to be walking try not to worry in six months I had two brain operations and had returned to work but everyone is different xxx
  14. Hi kindra welcome to btg xxx The reason drinking water is important after sah Headaches Headaches are common after a subarachnoid haemorrhage, but they tend to ease over time. They are not as painful as when you had your haemorrhage, and you should be able to control them with over-the-counter painkillers, such as paracetamol. Drinking plenty of fluids, as well as avoiding alcohol and caffeine, can also reduce the severity and frequency of these headaches. Hope you continue to improve xxx
  15. Paul so glad you like it xxx You are amazing how you have continued to support lin and yet still offer support to everyone who needs it here xxx I have met you and lin and you are both lovely people who deserve to be happy xxx
