  1. Wow. I feel like a total badass!!! ???Thank you so much Chris!! My first thought after reading what you wrote was "damn right"! This site has been a godsend! Thank you everyone!!
  2. Thank you Clare. Just taking things one day at a time. Some days are better than others. Your response is greatly appreciated! Chris, thank you. I will definitely be looking at the NASAH section. And I completely agree, the not knowing is what's bothering me the most. I'm going to give it my best in having some faith in the experts. Thank you for writing to me! Best Regards, T
  3. Thank you Vermont Girl! That's very reassuring to hear. I will be taking your advice. I appreciate you taking the time. I'm really drawing a lot of comfort from this site.
  4. Daffodil!! Thank you so much. I will definitely try the music. I noticed if I focus on something else, I feel so much better and I'm not panicking! I saw my doctor yesterday and my OBGYN today ( she wanted to check in after speaking to my neurologist). They also suggest laying off checking the BP so much. Clare, the babies are great and breastfeeding is going very well. How long ago was your NASAH if I may ask? Did you have little mini "headaches" that went away after a few minutes? I'm writing it that way because I'm not sure it's not my anxiety kicking in and I'm just having phantom pains. I feel like a completely changed person. Also I'm sure this can't be good for my anxiety but is anyone else reading research and medical journals on this topic like crazy??? Thanks! Best regards xxx
  5. I cannot thank you all enough for your kind and encouraging words. It's such a comfort to know there are others like me. I look forward to many conversations with you all. God Bless
  6. Hello all! Not sure I'm even posting this correctly, so please bear with me. My name is Taka and I'm 31 years old. I was discharged from the hospital this morning after 3 nights and 4 days. 2 of which were in the ICU. I had a severe headache hit me on Sunday morning around 05:30am after breastfeeding my daughter who is now 11 days old. I managed to fall back asleep and even ran some errands later that day. However, it seemed the headache intensified every time I breastfed. After dealing with it for another day and half, my mother called my OBGYN whom immediately had me go to the ER. After 2 CT's, an ambulance ride to a level 1 Neuro hospital, an MRI and an MRV then finally an angiogram, all this after battling a BP of 199/117.It was determined that although I had a small brain bleed, (subarachnoid hemmarroge)it had stopped on its own. My blood vessels, arteries etc looked perfect and I tested negative for an aneurysm or anything life threatening. Now this may sound great to some, but I'm conflicted as I feel left without adequate answers. I have never been so frightened in my life as in addition to my newborn I also have a thirteen month old son. The doctors are very happy with the outcome but no one can really tell me what happened. All I keep getting is it may or may not happen again, here are some BP meds and see you at follow up. The one thing they all seem in agreement on, is that it's all somehow related to my having a baby. But no one is certain. And don't get me wrong, I really like my team of doctors and I was advised to try breastfeeding again when I get home, but stop should I develop a headache. I'm trying not to check my BP every 2.5 seconds and I'm also experiencing little twinges in my head every now and then. I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but I'm fighting my anxiety and afraid to so much as sneeze in case I have a bleed again. I have another CT scheduled for 4 weeks and I'm seeing my new PCP (Who took care of me at the hospital) on Wednesday. Am I wrong to be concerned? And is there anyone else facing something similar? P.S. please forgive any typos. I have one child on the breast and another trying to pinch my cheeks!
