Mrsnicg Posted October 15, 2017 Share Posted October 15, 2017 In the very early hours of Sun 1st Oct after a night out with my boyfriend I became very ill, I had the worst headache I've ever had and I couldn't stop being sick, I spent most of the night on the bathroom floor. My boyfriend left for work the next day and I carried on being sick all morning, by lunchtime I was in bed and couldn't even lift my head off the pillow, just tilting my head to the side caused me to go dizzy. My Mum picked my boyfriend up from work and picked me up and took me to A&E. My boyfriend then informed me that I'd tripped over my dog and banged my head on the kitchen floor the night before but I couldn't remember. I was given a CT scan which showed a bleed on my brain. I was transferred to the HDU at another nearby hospital, and was given an incision in my groin and a wire inserted up to my brain to take pictures (I can't remember it's name, memory loss has been a problem). I was diagnosed with a subarachnoid haemorrhage and a fractured skull. I was released from hospital after 3 days but ended up straight back in again because I was In so much pain, it turns out I was prescribed codeine when it actually causes headaches not cures them. I was the released again the next day. All I know is I need to have at least 6 weeks off work and I can't drive for 12 weeks. The hospital hasn't been very sympathetic or helpful. It's been 2 weeks today, can anybody tell me what to expect and what is normal for my future please? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
