  1. Hey Gam, just glad it was helpful. Try and give yourself that gift of space and silence each day if you can, even if it’s just 10 minutes 15 can help , genuinely your brain will thank you for it. As a society ‘busy’ is worn as a medal but your brain is always busy, doing all this unseen work and yours is healing and trying to adjust to the damage from the bleed. So giving it some ‘quiet’ time is a great way to allow it some time off from all the other processing. Even now as far out as I am in healing if I am in busy situations I have to step away and give my brain ti

  2. Thank you everyone for your replies, suggestions and kind words. I introduced myself first and then started to read through the forums and posts, there was so much information that was relevant to me, i found the answers I was looking for in there, not so much what I wanted to hear but I do understand things much better now. I especially loved the letter to my brain. Thank you

  3. Now I am 14 months in still having severe pulsating tinnitus. Managed to exercise and do Wim Hof method to increase my energy levels and completed some long distance rides. Doctor has prescribed indomethacin as said the angio and bleed could of irritated the nerve around the ear which can cause tinnitus. I have found out I have slight hearing loss on that side where the tinnitus is. When I had the haemorrhage what I can remember if it was a clap on the left hand side of my head and then a pumping pulsing feeling on that side. Funny how its all on the left s

  4. Hi Daffodil! This is GAM. Sorry for the late reply. I appreciate your sharing so much! I was really down this past week. The tinnitus started in the other ear on and off. I felt like I was relaxing more and doing my best to get better. Your post inspired me to be patient and to continue to take care of myself. I tried "turning off all competing noise and switching of devices. Try and have some complete silence." I felt more at peace. Many blessings to you!

  5. Hi! I am almost 5 months post NASAH. The ringing sound had reduced after the first month. Then one weekend after much stress (worry about being forced to return to full time work, relationship conflict, etc. the sound was loud. I consulted with my neurologist and was given continued time off from work and reduced home conflict. The sound however, increased in December to an almost unbearable level. I went to the ER out of fear that something was happening again in my head...I waited 7 hours in the ER amid patients coming in with Covid-19. CT was clear. I began to s

  6. Welcome. Please take time and read many threads here. You will find them very helpful. I know things are frustrating with the way the world is today but take one day at a time. Try breathing exercises, insight meditation, hydration, no noise for a period of time etc. Suggest these books Finding peace in frantic world and Loving kindness. Good luck to you.

  7. Try insight meditation. There is Imc uk there and ims barre in Massachusetts and Imc USA in Maryland if you are interested. Try a weekend after the covid. Now I can’t take off work and quarantine to go there so I do home virtual course. No tv, work, phone, music for a week or so. You sit as a group three times a day and there is checking with a teacher via zoom daily. There are two 30 mins sessions of lectures. I did that in oct and was very good for stress level and my brain. Very rested. I m doing that again in March. It is basically in breath, out breat

  8. Daffodil, that is wonderful you are a trainer of mindfulness.. I think the most wonderful thing about it, is it gives me (or anyone) the ability to quiet and calm ourselves...my younger son is a mental health therapist and he is taking additional training to offer this to his clients, as he sees it as very helpful...

  9. Jean that is kind of you. ( I don’t do colouring either !! ) So one of my things of finding ‘new’ version Daffodil post SAH was I decided to train as a Business Trainer of Mindfulness. Gosh it was hard on the brain, I wanted to see if I could do it , I did and qualified if that’s a thing and I now do it for self reward really but it’s a way of my practising using my work day... I offer sessions each week for colleagues and it means I get to take that pause too! 8 years on I still need that and actually I’m finding lockdown hard as everyone is back home in my work space and so the

  10. Hi Gam, I have some buzzing in my left ear. Hearing was impaired at first but that came back...buzzing is tolerable for me, I am thankful...I am on board with Daff's words about mindfulness and breathing...I was not, haha, really not at all but did seek out a therapist who practiced with me and now I realize there is help within myself...I just sit quiet, no TV, and breath slow taking myself to something calming, enjoyable what your special place or thing is... I realize this is not everyone's thing..My daughter likes to color, seems like a big no to me but she lov

  11. Hi Gam Glad you checked out ok. Tinnitus when it comes on or ramps up is horrible and of course the more you notice it the more you notice it. It’s exhausting and we are fatigued enough. And there is the brain providing commentary ‘ what’s that’ ‘ what’s happening ‘ and of course the natural responses for the worry to creep up on us that something is wrong, that could it be another bleed, and then the fireworks really start going as this all spins together and can easily create the perfect anxiety storm. First thing to say is you are not alone o
