Packcuz Posted July 16, 2020 Share Posted July 16, 2020 I had a NASAH 4/29/20. I was in my basement lifting weights and felt a twinge in the back of my neck. I figured that I pulled a muscle in my neck because at 49 years old things like that tend to happen pretty frequently. I tried to stretch it out but after about 15 minutes I got really nauseous and knew something was wrong. Called 911 and the ambulance took me to the hospital. Luckily for me, 2 of my good friends were on call and they figured out what was going on pretty quickly. The fentanyl wouldn’t touch the headache. They immediately airlifted me to Vanderbilt where I was in ICU for 10 days. Of course this is during Covid so no visitors or family could visit. Honestly with how I felt it didn’t really bother me but I can’t imagine what my wife went thru on the outside. After the 10 days they sent me home only to have to drive the 2 hours back the next morning after a night of vasospasms. I spent another 3 days in ICU before being discharged. I’m now almost 3 months out and have been back to work since week 3 (only partial days for a couple of weeks). Started back in the gym a couple of weeks ago after getting the all clear from my dr. The headaches are getting better but the dizziness is still very much there. I also feel like I can’t relax. Hopefully this feeling along with the dizziness goes away sooner than later. Not being able to relax is starting to make me feel like I’m in a slight state of depression. Instead of feeling greatly for surviving such a traumatic event I seem to lean toward the side of being sad and depressed. Guess it’s just hard grasping what I went thru and that things like that can happen in a heartbeat. Add to that... almost 2 years ago to the day I had 90% blockage in my LAD and got a stent. That seems to compound my emotions. I’ve always been a confident person and my drs told me that everything in my head looks great and all of my arteries around my heart are in pristine condition. The only thing that I can be sure of is that God must have a plan in all of this. Whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, right!!?!? 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
