    • Try and see Doc and tell him as it is more than likely  nothing but to put your mind at rest tell Doc.   Nothing like peace of mind   when we are getting better xxx  It is only 6 weeks but we need to be happy and not worry about things .   Let us know how you get on xxx
    • Hehe, bet you’ve never been so glad to receive an insurance renewal! It’s strange what you look forward to when you haven’t driven for a long time. My car has rarely been driven by my partner since I stopped driving, as he has his own car, especially since my cars been SORN!  I can’t wait to take my car for a proper clean at the car wash, sad hey ! 😂   i called the DVLA on Monday and they said they had the report already and it was being reviewed. I called again today and it’s with the medical team awaiting the final decision, which they anticipate won’t take long as apparently I’m ‘fast tracked’. I was quietly hoping to be driving by the end of the year, but perhaps that won’t be possible!
    • Hi Todd,   Welcome to BTG...So sorry to hear about your PSAH.  It is a game changer for most people I think.    Keeping good contact with your doctor and a journal on how you are feeling is great advice from Casey.  It can be stressful when you are put on the spot in an appointment to remember everything you wanted to discuss.    The water  and rest for sure help.  6 weeks is a very short time in terms of your brain healing.  These events take time and patience with yourself.  You sound like you are recovering very well.     Best wishes as you progress and please check in and let us know how you are doing. Jean
    • Odd sensations and headaches are not unusual. You should report them to your doctor though. It’s a good idea to have a journal to enter how you are doing daily. It’s helpful when your doctor asks how you have been doing. Also you can look over it and see your progress. Drink plenty of water, and rest when you need to. Let us know how you are doing often. 
    • I suffered a PSAH 6 weeks ago. When I left the hospital I felt really well.   Over the last few days I've had recurring headaches, my head feels full and heavy, my jaw gets tight and I have had some minor neck spasms. I can function fairly well but I'm concerned.   Has anyone else had similar symptoms? I'm new to the site and obviously new to this entire event. Thanks for your help.
