kellieone Posted September 26, 2009 Share Posted September 26, 2009 hi all i had my sah/stroke on march 21st 2009, i was at home decorating when i developed a headache, it rapidly got worse and so i presumed it was a migraine. i could not look at the light and laying down did not help, my mum reassured me on the phone that i was ok just to lay down in a dark room. after around 30-40 mins i was repeatedly sick but still thinking it was a migraine. after around 20 mins after 1st being sick i stood up and my arm was floppy i could not move it at all. i called my mum and my aunty came and took me straight to a&e, there nobody seemed to rush to my attention although by then i really thought i was going to die. whilst being assessed i realised that i could not look to my left i was in a sheer state of panic. i was put in a bay to wait to see a doctor. i cant remember much about this apart from feeling like i was going to die and shouting staff to come to me which they did not, my aunt had gone to bring my mum to me as she obviously knew that what was happening to me was serious. before my mum came i was taken for a CT scan, after having the scan i stood up and my leg felt wobbly. i was quickly sat down and after that my entire left side was paralysed but i still had feeling. i was put into recuss and told i was going to be taken to the queens medical centre nottingham, i paniced even more. i kept asking if i would die but nobody answered me, 1 nurse laughed and said no your not going to die. i wonder if i imagined that?? as my story is rather long and i have not really repeated it before i will continue another day xxxxxxxxx Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
