hello to all followers, my first time responding or commenting on this informative site. I am 71 yrs old, Canadian and on Canada Day, '18 I was diagnosed with a "big brain bleed" following 4 days of the incapacitating headache.
As a retired nurse, I was wrongfully convinced it was meningitis as I couldn't lower my chin to my chest, combined with the headache, often a classic sign. I had the aneurysm coiled and hospitalized for 12 days. Neuro Dr says I have another smaller aneurysm they will keep an eye on. Almost 500 days now post SAH and only 6 of those days have I been without a mild headache, around a 3/10 on the pain scale. Tolerable and managed with ES Tylenol.
I did not, have not , suffered from the fatigue so many of you experienced. My issues are word finding problems, especially proper nouns, as in names and streets, and short term memory issues. A moderate loss of hearing in one ear may be more age related. As frustrating as these may be, this forum offers much appreciated information and support from others who have their own history with SAH.
