Pascal Posted March 27, 2021 Share Posted March 27, 2021 I’m a 50+ French guy who suffered a ruptured SAH back in June last year followed by an emergency splenectomy 2 weeks later while still in HDU. They didn’t seem to be related but none had an identified cause. Prior to the SAH, I had suffered some massive headaches and pain at the back of my neck for about 2 weeks but thought it was muscle related (even seen a physio) . Then, one evening I collapsed in front of my wife and grown-up kids (who performed CPR while on the phone with the medics). 9 months on, and I still suffer with cognitive issues (memory problems, lack of concentration…) as well as some strange sensations inside my brain when tired or trying to concentrate/focus too much (pins and needles, feeling lightheaded). I’ve gone back to work a few weeks ago with reduced hours and with different, easier tasks as I can’t do my previous job at the moment (stats, data analysis, reporting). I’ve seen some baby steps improvements with memory for instance, but generally, I feel I am, in a way, a different person which can sometimes be unsettling especially as I can’t find any information on these weird sensations in my brain. I’m very grateful to have discovered this forum a few months ago and find it very helpful. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
