  1. Thanks Macca for the info. The professor who operated did say it was a symptom. I don't see him again for 14 months and due to the covid 19 getting to see someone or even going to hospital etc is a no go at the moment. Thanks for your help though. Much appreciated. Carolyn 73
  2. Hi Suzanne Just seen your post. Hope you are getting better each week. It's now 8 months since my SAH . I still have awful fatigue. Some days worse than others but it is still every day. I also get headaches some days but not every day like before. A Neuro consultant gave me 31 botox injections in my head, neck and forehead in December as she said I had hemicrania continua which was not linked to the SAH. They made me have some small issues and did not work initially but 4 weeks later the dizziness and horrendous daily headaches on the right temple subsided my headaches
  3. Hi Janeece Thank you for replying to my post. Like you I am totally fatigued by lunch time. I also have to think of words if I am having a conversation but the dizziness, blurred vision and off balance feeling is quite frightening. I didn't have this in the beginning although I can't remember. On Saturday I had a total emotional breakdown and cried like I have never before. I felt so desolate and it lasted most of the night. It's 10 weeks now since my SAH and I guess I am better than I was it just doesn't feel like it. I have been going out with
  4. Hi Janeece I am sorry to hear about your sight. I am sure it will get better with time. I have heard others with that problem and it has taken time to improve. Ask your do to.r or consultant if you are worried. I have blurred vision at times and also have to close my right eye when the pain behind it gets too bad. It's not all the time but it is every day. I am still suffering from extreme fatigue and have to rest and have small naps and if I engage in a meaningful conversation I forget words. My long term memory is ok. I can also forget what I was going to say. I
  5. Thanks to all your comments Sophieskb that's a good idea 're the diary. I do keep a diary but just write good days bad days etc I think your scoring system could be a good indicator. Today a fatigue day so just rested. I do think the anxiety episodes are a bit PTSD. It is alien to my normal me but I guess I have to take a step back and accept and deal with these strange feelings. Thank you all for your support .
  6. Janeece. The advice you have been given is good advice. The doctor could give you an ECG just to check things out. I can vaguely remember when I was in the High dependency unit 8 weeks ago that I had to have a heart scan as there was something not quite right with the ECG readings. I am going to check with the consultant when I see him for my follow up in January what that was about. I have had to see my GP because of discomfort in my upper chest and lump feeling in my throat. My GP is treating me for reflux at the moment but I have to go back in 3 weeks if no better
  7. It's now 7 weeks since my SAH and I have had good advice from my previous post but I don't like me at the moment. Yes fatigue, headaches, weepy forgetful and no energy but this monster of a person who emerges with anger is awful and comes from nowhere. I think it emerges at its worst if I am having a conversation and quite rightly someone speaks and I forget what I was saying so I get cross for being interrupted. Also I get angry with my wonderful hubby for almost nothing when he is doing his best and today when lovely son popped in to see me I shouted at
  8. Hi sophieskb I have just seen your post in February and I thought I had written it. I am 7 weeks post SAH which was coiled. I spent 2 days in HDU and 10 days on a ward. I have awful fatigue, a weak right hand, awful headaches over my right eye and forehead and weepy days. I found this forum a couple of weeks ago and people have been very supportive to my questions. I have been lucky compared to some on here with regards to disabilities but suffer from the initial issues everyone has. I too was wondering about the driving situation. Obviously I am no where near ready o
  9. Thanks sub zero for your advice. Also Tina and Skippy. I think you are all right as I am not one for doing nothing and think each day I should be better and try to do more and then get tired and frustrated and over think things. I tend to be a bit more active if that's the word getting dressed overseeing hubby prepare the evening meal etc but by lunch time I am finished. Have to lay down and go to sleep. I don't tolerate noise so tv isn't on and I can only just read a few pages of my book and then have to 're read a page as I forget what it is about. I als
  10. Hi Everyone I had a ruptured aneurysm 6 weeks ago which was coiled but am at home now. I have fatigue, tiredness and feel weak but that's expected. I have continuous headaches above my right eye and am trying to manage the pain. Has anyone experienced headaches and for how long. Any advice welcome
