  1. Thanks for the responses and the support. To give more context about my particular SAH here are the finer details: As a result of COVID-19, I found myself working from home while my two school aged sons were at home trying to home school (7 year old and 10 year old). I was wrapping up a teleconference for work, when suddenly my neck became very stiff and it felt like I got hit in the back of the head with a hammer. I lost my hearing momentarily. I made it about 4 steps and fell to my knee. I then realized I was in serious trouble. As a result of l being on a teleconference, I had l

  2. Hi All, I just found BTG. What a great chat room! Thank you everyone for sharing your experiences! I had my SAH on April 21, 2020 (4 days before my 42nd birthday). I am experiencing many of the same symptoms that are discussed here. Headaches, neck pain (occasionally), cloudy short-term memory, dizziness & head pain when bending over. I do notice great benefit from staying hydrated and taking frequent walks. My head definitely tells me when I have over done it! Ah, stress definitively revs up the headaches. I am really trying to focus on managing stress!

  3. Hi Kyle, welcome to BTG and thanks for recounting your story. I too had an NASAH with hydrocephalus as an added complication. Made it out of hospital after just over 2 weeks but I was lucky that it was not during Covid and my family were able to visit the whole time. However my friends husband had what sounds like a very similar experience to you and he spent 3 weeks with no visitors. He appears to be making a great recovery. Must have been very worrying for your family and lonely for you. Mind you if you were anything like me you probably didn't notice much of what was

  5. Hi Kyle Welcome to BTG - yes, everything you describe is very common after SAH and, for some, does get better with time. Let us know more about yourself and the circumstances of your SAH - it's not just that we're nosy it helps us get an overall picture of you and your recovery - and helps newbies when they join to relate their circumstances and recovery.

  6. Tania Vincent is right that you should keep your hopes up for an improvement in your husbands vision. When you mentioned Hemianopia I remembered that the govt website has a lot of information that can help with understanding the accepted levels of eyesight that are necessary to have a driving licence. Here's a link.... https://www.gov.uk/guidance/visual-disorders-assessing-fitness-to-drive It may be that you have already found this but it is the go to place for information and I think it would be fair to say that Hemianopia (being 'blindness over half the fi

  7. Hi Vincent, Thanks for your reply I am very grateful, the results from the eye test he did at the hospital have resulted in it looking like he has hemianopia ( he definitely doesn’t think so and so do I to be be honest as he can see everything in the bottom of his right eye ) Would this now be more difficult for him to apply to get it back after the year has passed ? We are due back in 4 weeks for another field test at the hospital as we requested another ( I think it was the shock ) I just want to be prepared and ready to try to help him with this. I’m sorry bu

  8. Hi Rebekah, I am so sorry to read about your mom...you are such a good daughter trying to reach out and understand what has happened...This is a wonderful support site. I too had a SAH and it is so scary, my daughter and sons didn't know what it was and it was just waiting and praying for them. As I improved and they were able to communicate with the doctors they understood it better. My heartfelt prayers are with you and your mom.... xx Jean

  9. Hello Sarah I have not been on BTG for many months, and this is the first post I have read. I have been dreading reading such news of other BTG members. I cannot express strongly enough how precious and beautiful your lovely mum was. Her replies to my posts gave me hope, they made me smile, and helped me to be grateful every day. I could always imagine her singing at the top of her voice with gusto! As you well know, Win shared her sunshine and wisdom so generously with everyone who stepped through the virtual doors of BTG. I am very sorry you have lost your mum,

  11. Oh no Sarah, devastated by your news. My sincere condolences to you all. Win was a member of this forum who always brought a laugh and a smile to me, and her singing, well. She will most certainly be missed on here. God bless you all.

  12. Sarah I am also devastated to read your news about Winnie's passing. Winnie was such a great 'online' friend to me personally since we met 5 years ago and as Karen says she is so well liked by everyone here on BTG with her own incredible sense of humour. Her encouraging words to everyone ..'Think happy thoughts and keep singing ' will never be forgotten, and her frank insights into her childhood years with her family as she grew up were lovely to read. Thoughts and sincere sympathies are with all your family especially you, Al and Tilly. Subs
