I had a Subarachnoid Haemorrhage in January and a VP Shunt fitted in February. I have got steadily better over the months, been away on holiday and back to work on a phased return and feeling really well almost 'back to normal', until last Sunday when I started to feel light headed and more dizzy as the day went on. I've been to the GP who said blood pressure was OK and took blood sample but didn't think it was anything serious. I still feel a bit dizzy and just not right or rather like I felt three or four months ago. What I want to know is do the shunts need to have the settings adjusted every so often? or is it just after effects of the SAH that I will get every so often?
Any advice or help will be appreciated as I live on my own and it's a bit scary when I get these dizzy spells.
