Diagnosed with right side subarachnoid hemorrhage

Posted by ourlife2017 @ourlife2017, Jun 21, 2017

I’ve been in Richmond University Hospital for 21 days, with only test still being done. The pain is migraine headaches to the thousand. And I feel at this time, just like a lab rat. Now what’s causing the pain in my head is the high blood pressure, hypertension. I never had high blood pressure in my life. Hospital wants to do “lumbar puncture” to see if that’s causing my high blood pressure. I’m very afraid and don’t know if I should go through with this procedure..?

It has been three years last May that my accident and TBI happened. I continue to have difficult experiences most every day. Still have exaggerated startle responses where my hands fly up and flutter at loud noises, braking suddenly in traffic, a car beginning to pull out or other close calls in traffic. Often I am terrified in heavy traffic. Once when driving on a crowded freeway it began to rain heavily with wind. I was so terrified that I had to exit.
Recently I attended a meeting in a room that had a full ceiling bank of fluorescent lighting and no sound absorbing surfaces. People were talking all at once. My head felt like it swelled up, my ears rang and I got very dizzy and shaky. I pretended I had another place to be and left. This type of thing happens all the time.
Another issue is holding onto negative emotional issues, especially at night and then I cannot sleep.
And of course, fatigue, always fatigue.
Exercise always helps. Mental games help. Music does too. Talking with others. Just keep going.
