Gemmakeys Posted June 11, 2018 Share Posted June 11, 2018 Hi everyone, I had my non aneurismal SAH 7 weeks ago. It was a minor bleed and when I got out of hospital 9 days later on a Friday my walking wasn’t good due to 2 lumbar punctures and an angiogram. This improved really quickly and I assumed I’d feel a bit tired but could deal with it and resume life as normal until it passed. I teach, play and direct music self employed (so no sick pay) love my work and have a family of 5 to support also. Being tired wasn’t going to stop me so I got out on the Friday and gradually went back to work from the Monday and a week later everything was back in full swing. 7 weeks on, I feel like I’ve dragged myself through mud. When “tiredness” hits I feel floored with exhaustion. The back of my head to my spine feels like fire and pressure are circulating. My neck, shoulders and rib cage feel heavy and I can sometimes feel pressure in my chest. Last Monday I had throbbing and sharp pains in my chest. I also get stroke like flutters of numbness across my face very occasionally. When people say “tired” or “exhausted” I just want to know what your experience of this is. My symptoms make me feel like I could potentially push my body into having a stroke or a heart attack. What exactly is exhaustion and what are the dangers (if any). It will take a lot to slow me down as telling people “I can’t” because “I’m tired” just doesn’t feel like an option. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
