SarahLS Posted October 31, 2019 Share Posted October 31, 2019 I saw my neurologist this week for my (late) 18 month check up and we talked about the daily headaches plus the more severe ones I'm having 3-5 times a month. He thinks that my headaches are now more likely to be migraines than residual problems from the SAH. I'm not sure what I feel about this as I was on medication for migraine before this and the migraines were very different to the headaches I get now. I am a little worried I misunderstood his questions and that we were talking at cross purposes. He did say that an SAH can cause existing brain conditions to alter and he is the hospital migraine specialist so I guess I go with this. His follow up letter has arrived very quickly this time and he's recommended a medication change so I've made an appointment with my gp to talk all of this through. I also reported my increasing fatigue and my much more pronounced word loss, he put these down to 'poor attention' which made me think of primary school reports! He did say I should also ask my GP about possible menopause symptoms as the fatigue etc could be caused by that, but I'm only 42 so I'm not sure if this is likely, or if a SAH can trigger an early menopause? I am also having problems with regulating my temperature so I will ask. This all sounds like I'm uneasy with my neurologist and I'm not at all, more frustrated with myself that I don't think I'm explaining myself effectively at appointments. He always has plenty of time for us and does full examinations explaining what he's doing. Apologies for rambling, and I know no medical advice can be given but anecdotes and reassurance welcome!
