    • Hiya, can understand being scared me too, but wont stop me having it... also HATE injections but again get i'll get it done.  When I get the word to go...   My husband's had both his now and he's been fine just a slight sore arm nothing else...  Everyone is different...  
    • Had my Astra Zeneca jab on Saturday, so far no side effects.
    • Hi Jennifer     A very warm welcome to BTG. So sorry to hear your Mom has been so poorly. Such a very worrying stressful time for you. So pleased you found us. You will find a wealth of information here and lots of friendly caring support.    Sometimes these things do just happen and we never get answers as to why. It is very odd i agree. I had a brain stem aneurysm that ruptured. Symptoms just came out of the blue. I was perfectly healthy in every way. I was 45 when it happened.   Its good to hear you are getting some help from family, as being a carer, also working full time must be exhausting. Make sure you also look after you and find some me time where you can totally relax.   Feel free to ask any questions and join in the daily banter in the Green room.  We cant give medical advice, but can share our experiences.    https://web.behindthegray.net/forum/9-the-green-room/   Wishing you and your Mom well and look forward to hearing more from you.   Take care Tina xx    
    • I was really nervous too and understand why you might wish to delay or avoid completely. But like Chris I felt it was a good milestone opportunity, like it would indicate if I was in good shape and on the right path,  yes there’s risk as with all procedures but you are surrounded by folk who know exactly what to do.   One thing I remember vividly is I got sent the link as a joke from a friend to the hair remover for men reviews and my MIL read them to me afterwards in my ‘lie flat for six hours’ phase. We cried with laughter I felt I was going to do some damage.    So it’s ok to worry, feel nervous, acknowledge all that and that you’d prefer not to but do it anyway. Get a sedative yes, but get reassurance you are doing well, it’s a gold standard check, nothing else comes close.    PS the same link I got sent...do not recommend as a post angiogram  read or if you are easily offended then DO NOT read it , it’s very rude  ! But that good reminder for that all important tidy up before procedure https://www.amazon.com/Veet-Hair-Removal-Creme-200ml/product-reviews/B000KKNQBK
