  1. Thanks everyone for your kind comments and advice, it's greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi All It's great to have found this site which has so much helpful information I had quite a few unanswered questions since leaving hospital which have been addressed by reading people's experiencess. Thank you to all who have took the time to post them. I experienced a perimesencephalic subarachnoid heamorrhage 3 weeks ago whilst cycling to work, initial symptoms were a rapid on-set headache and neck pain that became worse as the day went on with vomiting. A CT scan within A&E detected a bleed the following day so i was subsequently admitted and had an angiogram 2 days later and commenced a 3 weeks course of Nemodipine. Previous to the bleed I was fit and active 43 year old, cycled most days, non smoker, eat healthily etc. Since leaving hospital ive had a few minor health problems; acute pain in my glutes and lower right leg which has now resolved; severe throat infection; Tinitus in my left ear and mild pain radiating down from the top of my head in to my left ear. My main concern at present is that food taste's strange and have a permant salty taste in the back of my throat which initially began as a foul bitter taste. From what I can gather a few people have experienced this which may improve in time? My sense of smell has also been affected. In context to what other people have endured I feel lucky not to have experienced any major physical impairment. My hopes for the future are to get back to cycling asap as I have a mountain biking holiday planned abroad in November which was booked last year. If this is safe and whether I'll be fit enough is questionable? So far I've been on a 8km walk and a gentle 20 min swim which wasn't particularly challenging. On discharge from hospital medics advised waiting 4 to 5 weeks before recommencing strenuous exercise. They also provided me with a 6 week sick note but the thought of going back to work in a coup,e of weeks feels a bit premature so may need to get that extended by my GP I wish everyone well on their road to recovery.
