Saunas and hot tubs

Recommended Posts

I think I have mentioned before that i am really feeling the cold post SAH. I was a chilly thing before it occurred and now I'm like a little block of ice. A friend suggested a trip for a sauna or hot tub might help and I wondered if any members have any experience using them post SAH. I used to enjoy a sauna pre head pop but confess to being a little unsure as to whether it's a good idea now. I can't see any contra indications and will of course check with my neuro nurses and GP but do any of you dip your chilly feet in a hot tub? Does it help? :-D

Daff I found hot tubs fine but I can't manage the sauna, my scalp felt tight & horrible so I only lasted a few minutes in there. I don't think there is any reason you can't try it & see how you get on. I was told I could do anything that made me more relaxed so unless you have an underlying problem such as high bp I would say its ok. I would still recommend that you check with your GP or neuro nurse to be sure
