  1. Thank you for all the warm welcomes! I look forward to being part of this very unique community. Seems these things often occur during exercise--a friend of mine told me that you never hear of NASAH happening to people while sitting around watching Netflix. (He was joking, of course.)

  2. Hello, I live in Oakland, California, USA. I had a NASAH on December 23, spent 5 days in the hospital with excellent care, and then sent home with minimal information. I'm so glad I discovered this forum--I'm having on-going symptoms that have freaked me out a bit, but reading through some of these posts, I see it's all to be expected and shared by other NASAH folks. This is also helping manage my expectations in terms of how long they'll go on for--the doctors really made it seem like I'd be back to my baseline within 6 weeks. With me, it's like I improved

  3. Welcome to BTG, You will as you have discovered find a wealth of information here, lots of people who have gone through and are going through, what you are experiencing. There is always someone here who can answer any questions you may have, although we can't give medical advice as non of us are qualified to do so. Try to make sure that you stay well hydrated and rest when you need to, it all helps to alleviate any headaches and helps with the fatigue. I wish you well as you continue on your recovery journey, be kind to yourself. Love M

  5. Hi Rory Welcome to BTG and so glad you found us - this place is truly a life saver. As for what your Doc told you about 6 weeks - I wish they'd look at forums like this before they give unrealistic expectations. You'll find a wealth of information and experience here - as well as true understanding of the journey that lays ahead of you. Definitely join in the banter in the Green Room - one of the biggest saviours for me was keeping a sense of humour alongside the determination, and the Green Room is where we "meet" to have a chat and laughs.

  6. Hi Rory A very warm welcome to BTG, As you have found, there is a lot of very helpful information here. So many of us leave hospital with little or no information on what to expect in recovery. I also wish you all the best with your recovery and agree with all the lovely Clare has said above. Feel free to also join in the daily banter in the Green Room. https://web.behindthegray.net/forum/9-the-green-room/ We look forward to hearing how you are doing. Take care Tina xx

  7. Hi Rory welcome to BTG glad you found us and are finding the site useful. Sounds like you are making a good recovery after your NASAH glad your MRI didn’t show any other problems. Fatigue is a very common after effect of a bleed and even after 6 years I still suffer if I push too hard. You will learn when you can and can’t do things and when to take it easy. It is fortunate that you can manage your work time at home. Work was and still can be an issue for me. I struggle with concentration and have attention deficits which in turn affects my memory. It’s a cas
