On 7th april I was in the gym rowing away when an explosion went off in my head. I stopped and lay flat on the floor for a few minutes. I then decided to go home as I was getting worse. At home I realized that I couldn't lie flat on the floor because the pain was even worse. I had pulsating pain like bombs were going off in my head. I called the emergency doctor who examined me and called for an ambulance to take me to hospital. I was also feeling sick. I was given oxygen by the ambulance crew which reduced the pains in my head. They did all sorts of tests in the hospital and wanted to keep me in for observation but I wanted to go back home so they let me but told me to go back if the condition returned. I went to asleep that night but woke up at 1.45 with massive explosions going off in the centre of my head and circling out. As soon as I raised my head they calmed down & I went back to asleep. On 9th April I went back to the hospital because I still had a headache and they decided to do a ct scan followed by lumber puncture. The sample had blood in it as they had great difficulty getting it and they weren't sure where the blood had come from. The sample was then sent away for more tests and the results were 'non diagnostic'. They told me they wanted to do another lumber puncture but I declined and went home on 11th. I have since had a mild headache but wouldn't dare shake my head or sneeze or go to the gym. I hope you can help me now.
