  1. Hello everybody, my name is Vicki and I had a subarachnoid haemorrhage in 2014. Please forgive my posting style as I’ve never done this before, so I don’t really know what I’m doing! Also, apologies for only just joining because the truth is up until now I had a good recovery. I’m just wondering if any of you have had any recovery issues, in particular bad headaches, later in your recovery. I had the initial recovery slowness, the feeling of a drip of water running across my brain, I still have what I call ‘slump’ days, but in the last year I’ve had increasing headaches on the right hand side of my head, not migraines (I get them too and they are different.) The headaches are increasing in frequency and severity. Initially I put it down to my shift pattern but it’s come to light recently but even when I am relaxed well rested and well fed these headaches are still occurring. I have seen my GP and I’m seeing her again today. I’ve started a new medication which seems to be helping somewhat but not entirely. I’m also getting nosebleeds with these headaches. My GP seems to think this is unrelated but I feel it probably is very related. My operational team at work want me to be referred back to neurology and I think I will be asking my GP for this referral today. I understand everyone’s recovery is different, I have now included my GP and I will be seeking further clinical advice from the experts, and I’m not looking here for that kind of advice from yourselves, but I’m not sure why am developing these problems five years after the haemorrhage. My skull plate is the standard titanium with three bolted screws and a mesh also. Apparently I’m only one of a few people to have the mesh inserted, and I know there has been lots of media chat about these meshes I’m not overly concerned about that, I may discuss it with my neurologist. It’s just the timing that I’m confused about… why am I getting such bad headaches now five years later. Are any of you subarachnoid survivors who have had a late onset problems, symptoms, or worsening issues. My last three yearly scan showed absolutely no problems, no further aneurysms, so I’m not overly concerned about that, although I may ask for the next one to be brought forward. I will check back with you later assuming I can figure out how, I’m trying to see where the replies are and the tabs are, this is all very new to me so apologies if it looks as if I’m ignoring you, I’m not!
