Bad Back


Recommended Posts

Hi All

This is a new one on me. I have suffered with back problems for many years (youre starting to think whats this got to do with brain aneurysms, is he on the wrong site). Well I am attending a pain clinic and see a back specialist and in fact saw him yesterday. He asked me if the pain in my spine had increased since my SAH and I answered yes as it has considerably got worse over the last 2 years. The doctor did not seem surprised and told me there probably was a connection. He wants to see me in about 6 weeks and will discuss it further. I also told him that my fatigue had got worse and again he was not surprised as not only does SAH cause fatigue but so does arthritis and other similar maladies.

I would be interested if any of you have medical problems which have worsened since their aneursyms as I was quite surprised when I was told this.

Cheers for now

A thoroughly miserable John

Bless you John and sorry to hear that you're in pain ...... it will be interesting to hear how you get on .....I've had a few bits and pieces that have reared their ugly head post SAH ...... not sure whether they're SAH related or not... nobody seems to know....

Hope that you're feeling better soon....

Hi John,

I don't know if this is of any help to you, but after my SAH, I had an extrememely sore back. I couldn't sit properly, I was never at ease when sitting down when in company. I always felt so very uncomfortable. Anyway, after chatting to my mum one day about the pain in my back, she told me that she had been told by my consultant that I would perhaps have pain in my back due to the injury that my brain had had. Seemingly it is to do with the blood dispersing from the brain after you've had a Brain Operation.

Even after one year since my SAH, I still get the odd twinge in the bottom of my spine. It is the exactly seem feeling that I had after my operation.

Take care hun,

H x

Yes, John indeed I have found that I get back pain, my consultant at the pain clinic ( Yes me too :wink: } has said that I have probably got Post Stroke Pain since my SAH. The back pains are new as are several other 'grumps' although I did have an existing arthritis . I am assuming that the arthritis will stay but the Post Stroke pain will gradually lessen :)
