Guest karen carr Posted January 28, 2008 Share Posted January 28, 2008 Hi everyone! I have just joined the site and would like to introduce myself. My name is karen and i had my sah anniv is three yrs this march, i worked at the time in a shoe shop and was serving a customer who was having a refund when i thought id been hit in the back of the head with a baseball bat, it literally knocked me off my feet and then the vomiting started, oh my god the poor customer must have thought he had entered a scene from the excorcist, i can still remember him asking "what about my refund" as i slipped in and out of conciousness lol, no joke! luckily for me a passing security guard saw me on the floor and raised the alarm, i thanked him afterwards for the care and kindness he showed me that day, he lay on the floor with me face to face until the paramedics arrived to take me to hospital, once there i was diagnosed with sah and transfered to walton neurological centre, what a fantastic place, the lives they save is incredible, i had the coiling done in a six hr op. my recovery was and still is ongoing but ive gone back to work fulltime in a job that allows me to be flexible in making up my hrs if i have the tiredness and dizzy spells which i still have but thankfully not as often, light at the end of the tunnel, i still have a stiff neck and a tightness in my head and also and i would love to know if anyone else experiences the cold rushing feeling like hundreds of spiders running in my head, its nothing serious, i have asked the consultants, they actually dont know what it is, so theres my story, thankyou for listening, its so good to talk to people who have been there, got the tshirt etc.Â Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
