Epaul1967 Posted May 4, 2012 Share Posted May 4, 2012 Hello to everyone. I thank God for this site. I've learned more in one day than I've been told since this started. My second life began on April 7th 2012. I was in the middle of a 30 mile bike ride. I've always been blessed with great health. The pain started in my neck and worked its way over my head. To say it was a terrible headache would be a huge understatement. I continued to ride for 3 miles, to my girlfriends, scared that if I stopped I would pass out. She call 911 and I was taken to the ER. A great doctor called for a CT right off the bat and the bleed was quickly found. He called it an SAH and I was sent to a bigger hospital's ICU. After lots of prayers a second CT showed the bleeding had stopped so they made me comfortable and told me VERY LITTLE about what had happened. In 4 days I saw the Neuro Dr a total of 5 minutes. On the fourth day I was told that I no longer met the insurance requirements and was discharged. I worried my self to death for two days and then went to my family doctor. He arranged for me to see a new Neuro Dr. That Dr ordered an MRI and Angio. (Tues 5/2/12) Both came back clear. No Evidence of anything. He made me a follow up appointment and gave me a return to work slip. I haven't drove in a month and just like that I'm supposed to return to regular life like nothing happened. My life has changed forever and until today I had never heard of a NA-SAH. I've lived 4 weeks scared to death that it would happen again. If you haven't read it before....here it is. THANK YOU for everything you write on this site. It is all such an incredible help. God Bless Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
