shirls Posted October 27, 2011 Share Posted October 27, 2011 Hi all. I've been reading everyone's stories before I felt ready to tell mine. I feel I am very lucky but tell me what you think. I had my SAH on 31st May 2011. I was at work went to the loo and had this weird vibration all over my body I work in my family business so shouted my son who was a nurse that I felt ill. Then I got the most awful pain in my neck and down my back, everytime I moved the pain shot through me. We decided I must have hurt my neck in some way so my dad took me home and after feeding by dogs I went to bed. I got up an hour later with the worst headache I have ever had and realised I needed help. Cut a long story short my son & dad took me to casualty at our local hospital after a long wait I had a scan and was transferred by ambulance to the Southern General in Glasgow(OMG morphine is a wonderful drug). Next day I had another scan and then a coil fitted. I spent 3 weeks in hospital and all I can really remember is the headaches, a lumbar puncture, the day my left side was dead, but it came ok with fluids:shock: The day my brain went into spasms and everything I tried to say came out wrong (that was a scary day) but that came ok too. Then I got home I could do very little but sleep but slowly I got better. I went back to work for an hour or so every day 3 weeks later. We moved house on 31st August and I had a week's holiday then went back to work full time I do get very tired especially when I can't sleep at night. I struggle at times to find what i'm trying to say which I hate. And I have fired my curry down the front of my dress in a restaurant because my coordination isn't good but getting better but i'm alive and very grateful for that I was very independant before my SAH and I struggle with being so much more dependant on my family than I used to be but I will just have to get used to the new me Hope I haven't bored you all but I can't sleep tonight Shirls Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
