debstir Posted April 23, 2011 Share Posted April 23, 2011 (edited) I had my Idiopathic (unknown cause) Subarachnoid Haemorrhage on April 9, 2011. I was teaching an RPM (studio cycling) class at the time-and had (up until then), been an extremely healthy and fit individual (I turned 53 this month and have been an instructor for 16 years). I remained conscious through the experience, had someone drive me to the closest ER where a CT scan revealed a contained bleed. They ambulanced me to Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital where I spent the next 10 days. I underwent two cerebral angiograms, both with no findings (no aneurisms). I was released home on the 19th, with very few instructions other than to 'take it very easy'. I realise how lucky I am to have suffered no apparent neurological or cognitive impairment, but at the same time I'm struggling with where I go from here. I see the neurosurgeon again in 4 weeks, and he wants an MRI in 6-8 weeks. I've read up on the internet and understand that my current fatigue, and mild headaches are pretty par for the course, but wanted to connect with a group like this to hear more stories like mine. I'm pretty in tune with my body, and sofar I'm listening to all the signals (I'm resting lots!)...but as an OCD, hyperactive individual, I *know* that as I start feeling better I'm going to be tempted to push the envelope... Looking forward to hearing from anyone... Deb Edited April 23, 2011 by Karen To add - meaning of Idiopathic - Unknown Cause Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
