  1. Hi Clare and others - I hope I am responding correctly, so please like if you get this. On 12/9 (2 months ago), after a very stressful phone call from my dad who was ill and wouldn't go to the hospital, I sat back down in my stressful social work internship and got a lightning bolt headache and my blood pressure had gone from normal to very high. I thought it was anxiety, but later that night I went to the ER and they immediately after CT scan said they see blood on my brain. Long story short, I had a Subarachnoid Hemorrhage, numerous angiograms - they never
  2. Hi everyone I have trouble navigating this site, so I hope I'm doing this the right way. I am 3 months post subarachnoid hemorrhage, non aneurysmal. I have gone back to school and tried to not stress out and have been pretty successful, but - I have iron deposits that have formed on my brain as a result of the bleed. One question - has anyone had these and what symptoms have you had and two - I get burning in my head when I get the slightest bit upset. Has anyone had this burning in your head? And does it ever go away? Thanks so much. Debbie
  3. Hi! I'm writing from NY and I'm scheduled to go for my follow-up angiogram. I had a mild SAH and they have not found any cause. I was in Intensive Care for 10 days, and have been home since to late December. I did have an emergency angiogram at the hospital, but now he wants to just be sure that there is no aneurysm showing up and check that all is ok. I am worried and my head keeps going to the possibility of a complication, like they say you can have a stroke. Last time all was fine but a small leak in my groin. I have been feeling really well. Headaches and burning in my head a
  4. I'm sorry to read that people have felt abandoned by family and partners. I am only a few weeks out and my SAH was very minor (dr. said 3-6 months months recovery), but still need another angiogram. People seemed very upset and concerned (certainly my family), but I feel like the abandonment is about them and people sometimes don't have the depth to understand or take the time. Perhaps they are fearful themselves. I think people can be quite insensitive. Also, in the very beginning it's fresh and then people don't realize how we look fine but perhaps are struggling. Maybe it's so serious that
  5. Hi, and thanks in advance for any thoughts. i suffered a very minor SAH a little over 2 weeks ago, after I was very stressed working towards my masters degree, and right after I hung up the phone with my father who had to go to the hospital and was being difficult and I was worried. I went to the hospital after that sudden, awful headache and pain in my neck. They saw a small bleed but after angiogram, MRI, CT scan, and 10 days in the hospital no aneurysm, source and it showed that it had "resolved." The ICU stay was traumatic and scary, waiting for a potential vasospasm which neve
