Hello Trish,

I am sorry for your difficulties. I did not have a shunt or seizure, but in the hospital I had double vision (now 6 months out it has resolved). I have had a feeling of eye discomfort and always dry eyes since the SAH event. My vision did not seem as good, either. And, it does seem worse with cold or sinus issues. 


I recently went to the eye doctor and he said I have the beginning stages of glaucoma in my left eye. I have a follow up appointment. So, good that you are getting it checked out. I am 61 years old. Family history of glaucoma. I have a personal opinion that when we have gone through a traumatic medical event ~ it seems to "kick in" all our pre-determined genetic health problems as well. I have had more health issues since my SAH that are "un-related" ~ so the doctors say. Take care. Kathy

Hi Trish,


My epilepsy was not over SAH but when I was 14 and puberty !! the older I got the longer I went without one.

Also have a shunt fitted as I couldn't wake up due to Hydrocephalus.  Once that was in it brought me back to land of living. 


I had my SAH 2009 and wham they came back with a vengeance.  But slowing up a bit now not had symptoms of a seizure since February this year.  I get when stressed sea noises in my ears,  I guess it is like tinnitus sharp high pitched noises and my ears always feel dirty nowdays but honestly I do wash them lol xx  Some days are better than others 


Try not to stress and I sing as it takes my mind off the buzzing noise xx Good luck xx Oh dry eyes also got spray for them xx

I have not had a seizure, I am sorry to hear about your troubles.  I can relate to the dry eye experience.  I see I am not alone with the dry eye and wonder if it has some connection to my NASH or Vaspspasm.  Trish I wish you well in your recovery.


Win, I love that you sing..everytime you mention I smile :)  I too believe laughter is such an important part of life..
