Tiredness and Exhaustion


Recommended Posts

Hi All

I am bringing up the old subject. I am exactly 2 years post coiling and was feeling quite well and the exhaustion I thought may now be a thing of the past but no its back with a vengeance. I'm back to sleeping in the day and going to bed early, I do suffer with arthritis of the spine which doesn't help. I am due for my check up next month and was hoping to give my consultant a good account of myself so I feel a bit let down. Anybody else had the return of the dreaded exhaustion.

Cheers

John

Hi John,

I'm 2.5 years post SAH and yep, I still get the odd week where the headache and dreaded fatigue return with a vengeance...... I would say that the frequency, is one week out of every three or four. It does wear you down.

me too the exhaustion hits me at least once a month and I just have to give into it, mind you I'm not even a year post op yet so maybe I'm pushing myself a bit too much.

Hi

It seems to be easing off now so I'm hoping for a good period now, these aneurysms are sly old things, you start to feel good then wham it won't leave you alone. Think I'll venture out next couple of days and join the millions of shoppers and treat myself.

I'm due to see consultant next month as apparently I have a small space that was not filled with coils and they want to see if I need more, never a dull moment!!!

Hi John,

yeah Fatigue is definitely the F word. I get hit when I've a lot going on (especially when kids visiting) and if generally run down. Never as bad as orginally and I bounce back a lot quicker.

It still is a kick in the teeth though, when I'm in good form I forget sometimes that the SAH ever happened, when Fatigue hits its a big reality check. But as i said above recovery is a lot quicker and I think body now is a lot quicker telling us when we need a rest.

Take it Easy

Good Luck

Hi Yasmin

I'm in the same boat as you mines not till after Christmas. I've got an MRI scan on 18th Jan 07 and I have to see consultant on 24th Jan 07 so in fact I'll be interested in how you got on but keep your chin up and have a good Christmas.

With regards to exhaustion I managed to walk around Cardiff today so I must have had a bad week last week hopefully I'll have a couple of good weeks now. I do have arthritis as well so it may have been a flare up of that also.

Cheers

John

Hi Yasmin, sorry for the delayed response. Re your question did I have to be recoiled? No, I had three seperate aneurysms all unruptured, all found by accident when they were doing a scan to check for something else which fortunately did not exist ! but they found the annies instead!!. Anyway all three annies have just been coiled once and all my MRA's have shown them to be fine, non have needed recoiling. Best of luck with your scan, I know how anxious I get at check up time.

Keep in touch and let me know the results, and sorry again for the delayed response

Hey Donna

You will get your life back, but at the moment you need to concentrate on recovery. Your body needs rest cos when you're asleep is the only time that your brain isn't workingas hard and can take some time and energy to repair - another reason why you feel tired all the time - cos the brain is constantly trying to heal and when you're up and about doing stuff - the brain is using energy for that aswell.

Your health has to come before socialising at the moment I'm afraid - but you will be able to go out again and not got tired - just be patient.

Take care hun and stay positive

Love Sami xxx
