    • Hi Catlaura      I had to have lots of tests to check my vision. The DVLA wrote to the Consultant that had approved my tests were ok to drive after 2 years. I did not have to re take my driving test. The DVLA after lots of polite phone calls chasing, returned my licence.   Good luck  lets us know how you get on.   Take care Tina xx
    • Welcome..As Super Mario said 3 months is really early into your recovery.  I know it is hard to be patient but brains heal slowly.  I too had problems with crowded places...I think for me it also involved and still does the fear of being bumped into as my balance is not what it was.  I work around it best I can and find I am able to do pretty much everything I did before.   I had anxiety after and found seeing a counselor helped me but time has also helped.  Go slow and steady, be gentle with yourself. xx Jean
    • Welcome to BTG I am noise intolerant and hate crowded places. Ear plugs are a good idea if you go anywhere noisy. I avoid crowded areas like the plague even going to the supermarket when I know it will be less packed and quieter.   On saying that, 3 months is very early in your recovery, so you need to be taking baby steps to avoid taking backward steps. Anxiety is very common after a SAH. If that is really causing you a problem, it would be wise to see your GP and ask for counselling. As for the gym, take medical advice as to when it would be possible to return to that activity. 
    • Hey everyone I have the same issue, its been 3 months only since my SAH  and I miss getting back into the gym, my problem is that I can not stand crowded places anymore or too much background noise. Does anyone have a similar issue? also anxiety its been nagging me more often now. Thank you for reading my post!
