  1. Hi super Mario, Sarah, Clare. Insurance quotes so far are around £100 which Is quite reasonable considering how soon it's been.

If you don't mind me asking, why did your initia

  6. 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 experiences. 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.
