  1. Thanks Win - it's funny you should say that about stress - I find that I can't cope as well as I could before with stress and now it makes me feel physically ill. Strange isn't it?! I think I'm getting a bit more worried about my health nowadays - and when I do get a pain I wonder if it might be the start of an SAH building up... I guess it's just natural to stop and think...'hey up...what's happening here'. Had my blood work done today so I'll give it a few days and book an appointment with the Doc to see what might be going on. xxx
  2. I would vote a 6 but can't see how to click on the vote button?
  3. Thanks Super Mario - they did tests on my heart before a major op last year and all is fine - so it's got to be something else. I'll keep pestering!!
  4. I was back at work after 3 months but it took a good year or two to feel like my old self and I still suffer from memory issues. Perhaps you need to think about changing surgeons or hospitals to try and look at sorting out your head pain. Sorry can't help with your disability question but best of luck x
  5. I had my NASAH (no known cause for my subarachnoid brain haemorrhage) in Feb 2012. For the past year I have had head pains (on the right at the back of my head) that I haven't had before, walking fast gives me pain to my jaw (but my heart checks out fine) and for the past month I've been having something like muscle cramps along my left arm often in my bicep or around the inner elbow which sometimes moves to my upper arm, and last night to my leg a little and this evening I'm getting tingling in my left arm as well. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had the same? I've just
  6. Thanks everyone for feedback - really appreciated. Well so far it is 4 out of 6 people who, just like me, have a crease on just their left ear following an SAH - which is 66.67% (and below the American Journal of Medicine which ran at 88%) ...but it's still early days yet so I'm hoping for more responses! I wonder if it's a fluke that for those who DO have a crease, it so far seems to be just on the left side? mmm.... interesting to see where this goes! Wouldn't it be great if we could say this is a potential warning sign for others to get themselves checked
  7. A crease line on your earlobe (known as Franks Sign) is purported to be a tell-tale sign of a stroke and heart disease (I'm obviously focused more on the stroke example being a survivor of an SAH). The Daily Mail (see link here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-4548952/Ear-lobe-crease-tell-tale-sign-stroke.html said that scientists who examined 241 people who had experienced a stroke found more than three-quarters of them had the mark. It's thought that clogging of the arteries which increases the risk of a stroke also leads to poor blood supply to the ear lobes causing
  8. There seems to be some links with SAH and heart issues - so my poll is just to see how many of us later go on to develop heart related issues. I had my SAH 5 years ago with complications of hydrocephalus and I'm currently being checked out for heart issues - the symptoms of which I only really started to notice a year or two after my SAH Thank you for taking part in my survey!
