Subarachnoid hemorrhage
Hi Doc
Iwould like to enquire about the possibility of certain symptoms I am experiencing being related to occipital parafalx subarachnoid hemorrhages I have had +-2yrs ago when I was involved in a motorcycle accident. I did not incur any skull fractures, but only the hemorrhages. For the past month or so I have constant pins and needles on the outsides of both my feet, from the middle, extending into my little toes. My hands also mistly has this pins and needlessensation, or would feelnumb.I would also occasionaly wake up in the morning having a numb sensation from my waist up to my shoulders and extending all the way down my arms. Are these symptoms possibly related to the hem,orrhages?

Dear Lucky2balive
It is unlikely, but with your history you should rather see your doctor for a thorough neurological examination - it could just be a vitamin shortage but you may have some fluid buildup in the brain due to scar tissue that formed.
