Katie2918 Posted August 13, 2011 Share Posted August 13, 2011 Hi! I suffered a perimenesphalic"(sp?) SAH on July 15, 2011 I had gone out to dinner and was watching a movie with my husband and girls (age 11, 8 & 5) when I felt extreme pressure in the base of my head. Within 10 minutes it was so extreme and I became extremely sweaty. Husband threw me and girls in car and drove me to the ER. I began vomiting in car. Felt sure I would die in front of my children. Personally, my memory end there. But, ended up with initial CT that showed SAH within minutes of arrival. Then transferred via ambulance into our medical center/nations top stroke care hospital. Repeat CT that night. Stabilized in ICU. First angiogram at 6am showed no ani. Slept through next 5 days. July 20 had MRI which again showed no ani. Moved out of ICU. Had second angio on the 22. This showed vasospasms and sent back to ICU for 4 more days. Daily TCDs showed improvement. Released on July 26. Follow up scheduled for Oct 4.
