I collapsed in Lapland whilst on holiday back in February, (5th), previous to this I had been suffering from sinusitis (I thought) and my go had given me antibiotics as it had lasted a good month! The first thing I felt was a sudden excruciating pain in my head, the next thing I was aware of was an ambulance! I was taken to a medical centre and given ibuprofen ( or suchlike), flew home two days later. Headache was still there ( but dull) so went to the gp who in turn sent me to a neurologist. Neurologist did a few tests and said he thought it was migraine but he'd send me for MRI which I had 6 weeks later. To cut a long story short I had results 6 weeks after ( neurologist not overly concerned, slight changes) another MRI ordered with contrast....6 weeks...MRI had......5 weeks....phoned for results and I was told I had a 7mm aneurysm on left posterior communicating artery that had ruptured and I was referred to a neurosurgeon as a matter of urgency. 1st August I under went the coiling procedure, had a TIA afterwards and put on meds for a short while, am now just on aspirin. Now waiting for my follow up.
Now to the weird part, I get dizzy in the supermarket or similar shops, ( didnt before coiling)I get tired but not the usual it's more all of a sudden and I think I need to go to sleep and I need to go to sleep now! If I get a headache I start to analyse exactly where my headache is coming from.
Can anyone tell me is this normal? Sorry to have been so long winded in getting to my question xx
