  1. Hi guys I'm really struggling sleeping at the moment had a NASAH permesnecephalic just over 4 weeks ago. I was taking nemodipine for the first 3 weeks every 4 hours and now my body seems to think it should still be awake every 4 hours. Gave in tonight and had a sleeping tablet but surprise surprise awake 4 hours later and can't get back to sleep :/( Any body else have the same problem and how did you solve it. Help!!!!!! Sleepyhead :/)
  2. Thank you all for your kind words and support. I am finding it very hard to come to terms with what has happened, I have never been ill in the past. Tried to do too much again this morning and ended up in bed for most of the day. I just want to be ok and do normal stuff Phil
  3. Hi all Feeling really fed up today, 3 weeks after my sah. I can't do anything wanted to take son to school this morning and just couldn't do it, felt dizzy and sick with a headache so went back to bed I finish my course of nimodipine today so at least I won't have to take tablets every 4 hours, I'm a bit anxious stopping taking them though. Phil
  4. Doh stupid phone posted before I'd finished Been thinking today this was my first ever time in hospital, don't know but maybe this is contributing to my mental state. Trying not to think about what happened in hospital, although I am having bad dreams. Oh well tomorrow's another day hopefully I will feel a little better and a little less confused.
  5. Thankyou guys for your replies I have had a bit better day today, just been on my own nice and peaceful. Had a long conversation with somebody from headway bristol. Has helped a bu
  6. Hi all Been reading others posts trying to reassure myself. I had a sah on the 13th October 2014 was asleep and woke up with a blinding headache. Called ambulance who left me at home saying try and sleep and call again if it got worse. Ended up going to see gp next morning who immediately sent me to local hospital for a scan. At this point my headache was like no other pain I have experienced, they found a small bleed and I was immediately transferred to bristol neuro ward. I can't really remember much about been in hospital except taking lots of drugs for pain relief which ended up stopping by bowels working so had to have intervention there. I was scanned numerous times and had a angiogram no aneurysm was found although blood was present no source was found. I was discharged on the 24th October feeling very weak and unstable with a weird headache and a bag of drugs to take. Since getting home I have slowly got more and more emotional, feeling like I am on my own and nobody understands how I feel, my wife, family and friends don't understand how I feel. Last night and this morning I think I had a mental breakdown, uncontrollably crying, getting angry, hitting the wall and shouting. My wife had to call my mum to calm me down, she has taken herself and my son away for a while I have been back to doctors this morning who has started me on anti depressants. I feel really scared, lonely, anxious, unsure of the future. Phil
