  2. Thanks everyone, well I have four children and I have taken more work on in the last nine months , it's all caught up with me!! Very depressing to go so for backwards when you think you have turned a corner! Great news about the baby Lin , hang in there it does get easier My legs hurt me everyday , and I ache across my chest very day , I've come to the conclusion that it is nerve damage . My GP has tested me for everything. I felt very dizzy yesterday and call into doctors as I nearly passed out , which has not happened before. My GP wasn't there so they just tested my blood sugars which w

I'm feeling very werid about it , depressed i think, i thought i would be happy to see it but infact i feel like i wont get there!!

  21. :-DWelcome to the site Simon, When i went into a&e they told me and my husband that it was a migrane even though i had lost my speech at the time and had no feeling in my legs!! Only that my husband pushed them that they sent me for a CT scan and boy did they change attiude when i came out of the scan:roll: I often wonder if i was back home in North Wales if they would have picked it up or sent me home. My local hosptial was Wrexham, as i born there and lived there. So from your experience Jan they would have!! Makes me proud to be Welsh:lol: But i mus
  22. Hiya Carolyn, Sorry to read things are tuff for you at the moment. I too was brought up in a house where you put on a smile and did'nt talk about how you truly felt. I've learnt from this SAH that this no longer works for me ( don't think it ever did ) i now say im not feeling up to it today or i feel depressed, this has been hard as it goes aganist all i have ever known. I now tell my kids to talk about how they truly feel and since then my two eldest are going to couselling because what they have been through ( they found me in the bedroom in a seizure when i had the SAH
  23. Glad all went well and the results were good. I too had NSAH 10months ago, i have now given up trying to work out why it happened, it's truly is a mystery. I had 2 angigrams and a MRI 6 weeks later. When i went back to see neruo i was told all was clear and no further tests to be done. I think we can't believe somthing so serious that happened to us has no more follow up!! Take care Rhiann x
  24. Deb my GP did give me temaze 10mg for sleep, i had them about three weeks after the SAH so about three weeks before MRI. When i went back to Charlies to see neruo they said if they are working it was fine, so ask your GP to phone them in Charlies if you are still suffering x
  25. I to can have problems getting to sleep, and some nights wake up in the middle of the night for no reason.And also some nights i get very little sleep, i find this happens when i im exhasted, i lay there for hours telling myself to go to sleep, on these nights i feel my heart pounding in my body and head and i scents of unease.
