  1. Sarah, So glad to hear you are doing well. Nice job! Best wishes and prayers. Chris
  2. Hi and welcome, I hope things improve for you as time goes by. My only advice, which has become a mantra for me, is listen to your body. Work stress and things that require concentration, especially with vision, like driving or watching a movie, were very taxing on me for a while. I would usually end up with a headache. But now, 4 years out, its not so much. Like Clare, I run often, and was able to start doing that again about 3 months after the NASAH. Recovery takes time and patience. Of course, if you are ever really concerned with something, please check with your doctor. Best wishes, Chris
  3. Hi Nikki, As you know, no medical advice here. So always refer to your doctor. I am 4 years out from my NASAH. For at least the first 2 years or a little longer, I would get the occassional sharp headache in my forehead that would typically last for less than a minute. Very much like a brain freeze when you drink something cold too fast. I don't recall having any of these in the past year or so. So maybe, if it is the same thing, it will get better for you. Best wishes, Chris
  4. 4 years ago yesterday was my NASAH. Still going strong and getting better all the time. Love my BTG family!
  5. Sorry, repeat post (speaking of memory loss) chris
  6. Best wishes Teri. As said above, it takes a while to recover, so go easy on yourself. Headaches and memory problems seem to be the longest of the aftershock symptoms for me. But they do get better with time. I thought 3 years out, I was as recovered as I would get, with still some strange headaches and short term memory problems, but now almost 4 years out, things are continuing to improve, The headaches are mostly gone and the memory is better, but it could be because I really focus on memory now. Years sounds like a long time, but in my case, most of the improvements came rather quickly, and the rest just lingered a bit. So I am hopeful that you will feel much better in a few short months. We are all different, and I will say the recovery is not a smooth line. I experienced many peaks and valleys, primarily with "gloomy" days where I just felt depressed. But those too get better and fewer with time. Please be patient with yourself and heal nicely. Chris
  7. Awesome! I only run 5Ks but I know how good it feels to be running again. Keep it up
  8. The anxiety should pass. You are stronger now than you were before with that flaw waiting to happen. Now it’s conquered and gone. I run by the spot where my bleed eventually put me on my knees and just smile and pass by. Don’t blame the activity. Best wishes.
  9. I think you should ask your doctor and follow the advice. My NASAH happened while I was running. I was told to wait three months before I started back. But that was mainly because they wanted to do another scan at 3 months once the bleeding cleared to ensure there was no hidden cause they could not see. After that scan, I was cleared to run. Until then I walked (and occassionally jogged a little until my daughter yelled at me for it). I was back up to my old pace and distance within about 6 - 8 weeks. I now run almost everyday with no worries.
  10. Welcome, I am so sorry this happened to you. Alcohol still affects me differently than before the NASAH and I am almost at the 4 year mark. I just learned to go easy on it. It mostly just makes me forget things, repeat myself, etc. I send you best wishes for a recovery. Chris
  11. Welcome. I am sorry that this happened to you. You will find a ton of great advice, information and support here. Best Wishes, Chris
  12. Congrats on the anniversary. I wish you continued improvements as more years go by. Chris
  13. Best wishes Jean. I have bulging disks in my back and am always told to work on core strength too. Doesn't seem to help much. I just have to avoid jarring it and sometimes I still get taken down by something small. like bending to tie a shoelace. The two things that helped me the most was losing weight and using an inversion table to stretch the back out. Feel better and stay happy! Chris
  14. Wow. What a story. I wish you health most of all. I hope they can find whatever it is that is causing this and that it is nothing serious. Whatever it is, stay strong and stay in touch with us. As you said, finding something is sometimes better than not knowing, so you can effectively treat whatever it is.
  15. Another runner here. Just 5Ks for me but it feels good to run them without fear. It took a while. Nice work!
