Valene Posted July 17, 2018 Share Posted July 17, 2018 I am 6 weeks post non- aneurysmal SAH. Most likely attributed to RCVS (although since I did not meet most of the criteria for RCVS, it seems to me this title is a catch-all for when doctors really have no idea what happened). I received two angios, and 1 MRI that were both good during my week-long hospital stay. This week I asked for my notes from the CT at the hospital in search of why I hadn't made a full recovery after 6 weeks since I was initially told I had small bleeds. I am grateful that I found this site. I understand now that I misinterpreted, or better yet, was not explained the seriousness of "small" bleeds. The notes from the CT say: "Diffuse subarachnoid blood is seen overlying the bilateral frontal lobes." I was originally asking where I would find information on the type of symptoms I might be expected to experience based on where the bleeding was, but maybe it doesn't even matter where the bleed was?... I guess I really want to know if this is familiar to anyone 6 weeks out? I have headaches across the front of my head, around the back (but much better, managing with Tylenol mostly); blurry vision, sometimes double, and the feeling that something is in both my eyes (the eye issues are fairly new and quite alarming considering I normally have 20/20 vision); neck and back pain; quickly tiring out, lack of focus, and memory (My family tells me I ask the same questions over and over, but I don't remember.). Thank you so much! This site has helped take away much of the guilt I had about not being able to bounce back more quickly. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
