suek.0148 Posted June 20, 2011 Share Posted June 20, 2011 Hi all It's been a while since I last wrote. It's so refreshing to come back on and see that I'm not the only one with lingering issues since my NASAH. I've managed to return to normal in many ways so mustn't moan too much - however tiredness and head 'pressure' when I get stressed or over busy are still quite debilitating, particularly in the evenings when I go to bed to literally 'get my head down' by 10.00. I'm also finding I can't cope well with busy or intense situations like shopping malls or meetings and big social occasions. I haven't read a book for ages and my concentration levels aren't what they were. I pinned a letter from the top neurosurgeon in the uk apologising that I was dismissed from hospital without any proper advice or explanation of what had happened to me. He said that 'if' I had had a bleed, it was a 'minor' one of unknown aetiology and I shouldnt worry and will be back to normal soon. I look at it when I start to worry but do wonder if there is much understanding out there as to the long term consequences of even these 'small' seemingly insignificant events like mine. I'm a coper but even I have been fearful about reoccurrence and question whether I am getting the 'balance' right now and having enough rest. For someone who was active, fit and healthy before, the lack of ability to do all I want to do has been a real challenge and not helped by everyones well meaning concern, which just makes me feel a complete invalid. Ho hum - reading everyone else's posts it is good to know I'm not alone and my symptoms are quite common. Thanks for being there x Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
