  1. Hi there Keep well hydrated, give your Doctor a call (I know you said you cant visit with Covid19) but call and speak to someone about it they're doing more phone consoltations anyway.. Echo voice I get this when my ears are full for me since the SAH I produce too much ear wax and it builds up... Take care, stay-safe.

  3. Hi there Warm welcome, glad that you found us... No there isn't a lot of info out there, fatigue, headaches, cognitivie skills, emotional rellercoaster, memory all normal in my view. take things slow and easy, keep well hydrated helps with the headaches... Listen to your body when you feel you want to rest then rest don't push yourself on... routine helps well I think so anyway. hope the site helps you, knowing your not alone is the main thing... take care, stay-safe.

  10. Hi there Warm welcome. I applied for PIP and wasn't turned down thankfully, just wanted to say I went through CAB (citizen advice) and cant praise them enough, don't fill the forms in yourself as they have correct terms to put in...

  13. Hi Mark Warm welcome glad that you found us. Sami/Skippy's right we all 'get-it' and understand, you are early in the recovery keep well hydrated, rest (yes you may not like it) and also listen to your body when you feel you've have done too much give into it and 'rest' slow and easy does it.

  15. Hi Matt, and welcome so glad your able to post now....

  22. Hi there I think its a common thing I mean its our brains that have been effected cant stick a plaster on it and say there-there.. I am SO pleased you've made an appointment with your GP maybe you could see about councelling such as Headway hear great things about Headway or councelling in general.
