  1. Julian hope you had a great Birthday and the crying babies didn't ruin your dinner out hope you had your ear plugs ! .... stay strong xx
  2. 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
  3. 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

    Out of the Blue

    Hi Blueberry a very warm welcome to BTG I also developed tremors in my hands a few weeks after my SAH, that were quite bad, especially when tired. They did last about 6 months and gradually eased off, but if i over did things it came back. Keep doing what you are doing and make sure you rest up lots as 6 weeks is very early in your recovery. I had 2 angiograms and did not find them uncomfortable. As Super has said above, make sure they are aware that you had a nasty reaction, they may find another way or something to help you. Glad you found us, keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Take care Tina xx

    Joan saffy

    Hi Joan (saffy) Well done on getting your blood sugars down and fingers crossed for you too, that all goes ahead for the 15th October. Wishing you well xx Love Tina xx
  13. Hi Dina A very warm welcome to BTG. As Jean has said, many of us are left with something that cause us to worry and feel more anxious. The good thing is, you have been and had a check up and all ok. It may be stress and anxiety, 3 months is very early in your recovery. I had head pressure for quite a few months after SAH. Your body could be telling you to slow down, maybe you are doing too much. Rest up as much as possible and drink lots of water. Keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Take care Tina xx

You are in the very early stages of recovery and feeling exhausted doing the smallest of things and emotionally all over the place is very normal.

You have been through so much and have the worry of further brain surgery too, bless you xx Its good to know your Mum is around to help and support you and your Son. You will find BTG has a wealth of helpful information and caring support. Also as has been mentioned above Headway are very good.
