Visual & Other Problems in Frontal Lobe Bleed


Recommended Posts

It's been awhile since I visited BTG as I have had other health challenges going on.  Hope everyone is travelling okay ....

 

Needing some help with a couple of things please.  I had a large volume frontal lobe NASAH in January 2020.  My understanding is that impacts the areas of cognitive and emotional regulation.

 

My question: is there someone else here similar who experiences other unexpected impacts related to frontal lobe injury such as visual disturbances, physical weakness, clumsiness, fine motor skills and other weird stuff. 

With thanks and warm regards to fellow travellers

Hi Majella :) 

 

Good to hear from you.

I hope you are now feeling better from your other health issues xx

 

For me, all that you mention i went through in the first 2 to 3 years of recovery. It has improved over time. I know how frustrating and worrying it can be, try not to push too hard. Be kind to yourself xx

 

It just takes time and everyone is different in their recovery. The fact that you have had other health issues going on will also have an impact on your recovery. Saying that, if worried always go back to see your Neurosurgeon or Dr for peace of mind.

 

Take good care, wishing you well with your ongoing recovery.

Keep in touch and let us know how you are doing.

Thank-you so much for this Tina.  It can be scary when experiences go outside what is expected from the bleed you have had. Drs are now talking about a separate neurological condition called Functional Neurological Disorder but there  is not testing for it.  Bit bewildering... 

 

Kind regards

Hi Majella

 

I had not heard of Functional Neurological Disorder, so just looked it up.

Bless you, a lot to take on board. I do hope with your Drs treatment all your symptoms will start to improve over time. Its good they are keeping a close eye on you too.

 

Wishing you well.

Please keep us updated when you can.

 

Take care

Hi Majella

 

I too had a NASAH in 2015.

My original scan showed blood in the tentorium, cerebellar, suprasellar, pontine and ambient cisterns. Small amount of ventricular blood.

 

For most patients with haemorrhage there is no specific area of damage. The blood escapes over the surface of the brain and causes irritation and symptoms all over the brain.  

 

Since the bleed I have struggled with attention, memory, concentration and fatigue. More recently (the last year or so), I have developed a stutter for no reason. I have had speech therapy which was some help and was referred to Neurology.

 

The Neurologist has asked for an MRI to see if there have been any changes since my bleed which have caused it. If it shows nothing she feels it may be a Functional Neurological Disorder. This is a little worrying as there is no single specialist who deals with this. My MRI is scheduled for mid-August, hopefully get some answers then.

 

Take care

Clare xx
