Guest bikergrrl Posted April 19, 2007 Share Posted April 19, 2007 Hello all! Im Jackie, 33 and had my SAH nearly 4 wks ago. Wasnt doing anything strenuous when it happened just out playing on my bike when I had the headache to end all headaches and knew I had 2 get off the bike b4 I crashed! After throwing up and feeling weak for a while my neck and shoulders went very stiff so I put it all down to a very bad trapped nerve and stupidly rode home 10miles! Eventually got an ambulance to casualty and was diagnosed swiftly which seems a rareity reading your comments! Then was transfered to Walton and bumped up the surgery queue for the coil which was quite scary in itself! Staff there were fantastic, apart from the dayshift in the high dependency unit which would have been better named the neglect ward! Anyway home now and recovering really quickly although trying to do too much. Not having headaches unless I lean my head against something or sit on something hard! Very tired by midday. Cant handle noise or phones tho and memory, well worse than it was and was bad before! Main problem though is no one believes Ive had a SAH. not even my doctor, saying I was too young, I must just have had an anyeurism not a haemorrhage So have decided to wear bandages on my head or shave some hair to give myself some creedence so people dont think im just being lazy! haha Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
