Real Stressed Headache

Recommended Posts

I think I am losing the plot. here goes need to give vent.

I have always had stressed out headaches before SAH, but last night I was so stressed out as it was Dads day and my

Daughters b/day and I had to be well for them both.

I tried but when hubby came to bed I was crying and holding my shunt bump and neck. (Al had been moaning also!)

I was feeling so down and head still hurts by shunt, so got to make appointment with Doc.

I have never felt so scared, as before SAH I just used to get Al to hold my head but since SAH I hardly have bad heads.

Okay feeling sorry for myself now and that wont help me any.

Just needed to sound off about my fear xx

Thanks All

Sending super big hugs your way Win but please go and get this checked out! I have been told any tenderness is something to report. A simple series of scans will quickly check the shunt is working correctly, they are very non scary. You can do it Win!

Update on Docs visit and thanks all and Brian,

As I said my head felt better after telling you All xx

Still went to Docs he said" Well you look great but if you want me to send you up hospital I will"

Then he said your blood/p is okay and made sounding noises, like "do you get tension you look well" which made me feel great.

I said to him if I feel worse I will call him straight away and we left it like that, I feel better and thanks all of you for

being here for me xx a trouble shared xx

You are not a whiner..........you may be on the bottom of the list of Whiners! Glad all checked out ok. I just asked someone else if they check their BP at home? I have had to track mine for sometime and I was shocked how high it was when I was having pain.

XOXXO marybtheretoholdyourhandandpumpthemachineforyou!

My Al got me a b/p machine and he tested it on himself to see how it worked.

He had to go to Docs with high blood pressure as my daughter said "oh Dad that is way too high" and scared the life out of him.

Cannot stop laughing about that time xx do you know I never thought to use it when I felt rough.


Win xx Winwhofeelsgreat xx xx

Boy I understand that!! I was just was talking ( texting ) Michelle about her needing to take headache meds before head was unbearable. I asked her if she takes BP when head hurts etc.... so she went and took her headache pills. I lliterally a few minutes later had a pulsating vein in my neck that I could see pulsating up and down. I was like "What the heck is that about??!!". She than said why don't you take your blood pressure???? Duh! I tell you it takes a village of us to get it right! :lol:

XO mary

Glad you are feeling much better Win, don't ever feel that a bad head is a whinge!!

Hubby bought a bp machine from Lidl & it works fine for him but every time I try to use it it comes up with an error message!! Then my bp goes up each time it fails!! :devil::devil:
