I had my SAH on the 2/7/16 coiled 4/7/16. I was driving back from shopping with my partner and 3 year old daughter we had a heated discussion that's when it happened the worse pain I've ever felt my neck went stiff head was banging and felt very sick.
I had been suffering funny headaches since April and been given migrealeve,cocodamol and told numerous times by GP I was suffering with migraines. My partner drive us home and I went to bed and slept for 12 hours he woke me and I couldn't lift my head so he rang the hospital and no ambulances were available so we went waited 3 hours in A&E to see a doctor who ordered a ct scan.
They said I had a bleed and would be transferred to Salford Royal for more test it was there they found the aneurysm 11mm x 6mm had this coiled. I also have another which is 4 mm and they decided to watch this one.
I find it hard to switch off at night although I'm very tired still ...I'm taking paracetamol and ibuprofen most days and feel hungover every morning.... very fatigued after the smallest tasks but I am improving.
Luckily I have no memory problems just get very irritated and don't have the patience I had previous. I was back driving after my 3 month check up with consultant. I've not felt like going back to work just yet ....my 3 year old keeps me very busy..
