  1. Hope all went well with your MRI today ? Take care Tina
  2. Hi Shaw A very warm welcome to BTG I did not have any warning signs before my bleed but others here may have experienced your symptoms. Good to hear you have made an almost full recovery but sorry you are experiencing those odd symptoms again. I hope you get some answers when you have your CT angiogram. Let us know how you get on. Take care Tina
  3. Hi Packcuz Feel for you. I still get like that even now sometimes. For me. its when i have overdone things and over tired. I know you said you started a phased return to work. How is that going ? Do you think you are maybe pushing too fast ? 4.5 months is still very early in your recovery. Your brain is trying to carry on as normal and also repair. Maybe you could try and find a way to slow down a bit during the day? Take care Tina
  4. Happy 18th Anni-versary Jess I also agree with all xx You have been a real inspiration to me over the years, thank you 🥰 and yes, you should be so very proud of all that you have achieved and overcome.

  10. Hi Ann So very sorry you have had to go through this all again, Bless you, what a nightmare. Thank goodness the surgery was a success, so very scary for you and your family. Well done on pushing for a scan in December. I guess with Covid etc everything is all delayed. I agree with you to fight for your yearly scans especially in these unprecedented times. Thank you so much for sharing and know that we are always here for you ❤️ Wishing you well with your ongoing recovery. Keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Take care
  11. Carolyn i believe if you have had a bleed you do have to inform the DVLA by law. You will need to get a letter from either your Consultant or GP to say you are well enough to drive. Here is the link for information on returning to driving. https://web.behindthegray.net/forum/23-driving-after-sah/ Loving your attitude onward and upward xx

  13. Hi Carolyn A very warm welcome to BTG , glad you found us. There is a wealth of information and support here as you have found. Here is a link to A Letter From Your Brain. I found it very helpful. https://web.behindthegray.net/articles.html/inspiration/a-letter-from-your-brain-by-stephanie-st-claire-©1996-r167/ I think you just have to listen to your body. If feeling tired, try to rest. You may just need to have a quick sit down, or you may need to actually have a nap. Don't push too hard too quickly. Pace yourself, drink plenty of water, i
  14. Brian all that you have mentioned, many of us here can relate to. I had bad head, neck and back pain for months. I was told it was the blood dispersing though the spinal fluid. I had pain for at least a year. Forgetfulness, brain fog, trouble processing things and also not articulating how you used to, are all common side effects from a bleed. I use post it notes or reminders on my phone. When i am tired finding the right words are difficult sometimes. Also suffer from fatigue. Pace yourself, listen to your body and learn your limits. Your brain has had a major trauma and is worki
  15. Hi Brian A very warm welcome to BTG. Sounds like you are going through a really tough time. Sorry to hear about your accident. You are still in the very early stages of recovery and your body tells you when you are pushing too hard and need to take things slow. Being scared is very normal. Things will improve, it just takes time. Sometimes one step forwards and two steps back, but it will get better. You are very young and that is on your side. Try not to google because i think you can scare yourself unnecessarily. You have definitely come to the right place f
