Hi all, I know it's been a while since I posted but I have had the worst time since my SAH last May. I suffered a major heart attack 7 weeks ago and was airlifted to hospital for emergency surgery. I have now faced my own mortality not once but twice and it has left me with some real issues. I am in therapy since my SAH and it helps to a degree with the emotional and physical trauma although having a heart attack as well has left me feeling very 'weird' for want of a better word. I don't think they are related medically and the doctor is also left scratching his head as to why these things have happened to me. i just wanted to know if anyone has heard of anyone having a brain heamorrhage AND a heart attack within 8 months of each other, or even at all? Please let know if you have had any experience of this or have any words of wisdom. with many thanks MandyB x
I had a headache for 6 years and 2 months and seen numerous 'specialists'. The drugs doled out by the NHS were outrageous with ridiculous side effects and I even tried acupuncture. I had a particularly bad run last summer starting in June for about 3-4 months then again in December ending in March. A bad runs leave me basically living in a basic sub-human existence, dopey, tired, irritable etc. After the bad run in March I went on a mission to find something, anything to ease this situation, total free thinking exercise before another relapse. Currently my only medication is Botox as a side effect migraine sufferers found it beneficial. I had the odd paracetamol/Ibuprofen but nothing else but At last I am doing better starting from when I started taking CBD via a vape. I think I may have turned a corner, like a fog has been cleared in my mind and my old energy is there too. CBD is the non-hallucinatory / high part of cannabis and is legal in the UK for some medical conditions like MS as It helps the internal cannabinoid receptor system in the brain. I had thought for a while my headache symptoms were false, like people who have lost a leg and get cramps there if you know what I mean. I don't want to promote anything here but look into it folks if like me you have literally tried everything. I thought it can't be that good, so stopped taking it for 36 hours and all the old symptoms came back, constant left temporal headache, headache 'bangs' (like a punch on the bare brain), lethargy, drowsiness. Hope this helps someone, Im happy to message if you want to discuss but am also aware that on the forum we can't promote any solution or medication. I am so revved up I had to share, my little voice is asking "where is the headache fella", and singing Etta James .... At last, My headache has now gone, My days of pain are over, And life is like a song!
