  1. Hi AMI A very warm welcome to BTG Well done for getting back to work and really hope you can resolve your shoulder pains. Just a thought, a while after my SAH, i experienced shooting pains from my shoulder down my arm and i could not lift anything without terrible pain. I went straight to my GP who sent me for an X ray and it came back i had severe Calcific tendonitis. Just came out of nowhere, thankfully nothing to do with my SAH. I had to have keyhole surgery to remove the calcification. Ultrasound therapy helped me at first, but it kept coming back with a vengeance, hence the surgery. Good luck and take care.
  2. Hi Paula A very warm welcome to BTG, glad you found us. You have certainly come to the right place for lots of helpful information and friendly caring support. How you are feeling at the moment is all very normal, you have been through a major trauma. Rest up as you have been and drink plenty of water. Listen to your body and be kind to yourself. We look forward to hearing more from you and please feel welcome to join in the daily banter in the Green Room. https://web.behindthegray.net/forum/9-the-green-room/ Take care Love Tina xx
  3. Congratulations Johnnie on your weight loss thanks for sharing. My husbands daughter used the Exante products (others are available) with the guidance and monitoring of her GP. She did not have Diabetes but was borderline like Louise's husband. It really worked for her too. She now watches what she eats and has kept the weight off. Glad you are feeling the benefits. Not long until June when you can try out your new beach bod Well done, its not easy to stick to i know, well done ! Tina xx
  4. Hi Christian A very warm welcome to BTG. I had double vision badly for about 2 years, it then thankfully began to improve. I did not have Quadrantanopia but can empathise with some of your symptoms. Good to read you feel like its getting better, you are still in the very early stages of recovery. There is a very helpful thread here on Quadrantanopia, i will post the link below and hopefully it may help you. If you click on search at the top right of the Forum, by your name and enter quadrantanopia, you will find other posts too. Take care and we look forward to hearing more from you. Tina.

  6. Hi Rosie Welcome back, we are always here for you if and when you need us xx Sorry you are feeling anxious and worrying when putting your head down. It's normal to worry sometimes, especially as you are only 2 years on from your SAH and just had an MRI that has bought it all back again. I could not put my head down for a long time, because it hurt and caused a pressure feeling which caused me to be anxious like you. It does get better, just takes time. Maybe try to avoid the head down exercises for a bit and as Casey says, checking with your Dr would be a good idea. At least then you may get peace of mind and feel less anxious and can hopefully enjoy your yoga classes Let us know how you get on. Take care Tina xx
  7. Hi Nikki a very warm welcome to BTG So sorry to hear that you have had a set back and ended up back in hospital after doing so well. Sounds like you are in good hands though and hope you get some answers soon. We cant give you any medical advice but can share our experiences and you will find lots of friendly helpful support and information here. Over doing things can certainly make you feel sick and dizzy and your body will certainly let you know if you have been over doing it. You say you feel exhausted, listen to your body and really take things easy. All the symptoms you are mentioning can also cause you to feel sick and dizzy so its a good thing they are checking you out and it will give you peace of mind. Hope you get to see the Neurologist and you get your blood results back soon. Keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Take care Tina xx

  13. Hi Bev Loving your mindset, onwards and upwards, positive head on Hope today another better one for you and your little cat Mac xx Take care Tina xx
  14. Hi Bev I really hope that today is a better day for you in every way. 6 months is very early in your recovery and it took me about 2 years before the sensory overload and tremors improved, but they did I still get bad days with my balance and dizziness, but its when i have pushed my limits and not listened to my body. As has been said above, your brain has been through a huge trauma and is trying to repair itself and continue to function as normal. Be kind to yourself, listen to your body and take one step at a time as you did the other day and it helped you feel a little better. So pleased the Pregabalin is taking the edge off the pain in your hands feet and elbows. Things will improve, it just takes time which can be so very frustrating. You have been through so much bless you xx Sending you loads of positive thoughts and a big hug. Wishing you well for your MRA and further tests. Keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Take care Tina xx
