7 months ago, I had a shunt installed after a SAH. I'm 49 and had a complete recovery without loss of function. Today, my wife woke me from a sound sleep this morning and asked me a question about our business and I couldn't answer her question. Earlier this week, my teenage son said thank you sincerely to my wife and I and I jumped all over him as though he was being sarcastic. I misread his tone and reacted wrongly without thinking.
There are other examples. My wife has said she is concerned about this level of confusion. I tried to get in for a neurology consult today and the next appointment is 3 months out. I'm not sure what to do at this point. I don't think I'm confused, but I did just notice I was less sharp than normal in a conference call. When I had my SAH, I had a distinct head ache and my BP was 174 over 147. I don't have a head ache now and my BP is 128 over 85 which is normal for me.
Any suggestions as to what to do next?
