Can anyone give any suggestions

I don't even know where to start..... I had a subarachnoid hemorrhage on August 21st and I can't get my doctor to listen to me. I get horrible headaches but nothing seems to help and now he's trying to get me to take a antidepressant. I've tried to explain to him I'm not depressed I need to stop the headaches so can sleep. I'm lucky if I get 2 or 3 hours of sleep a night. I'm sleep deprived not depressed. I try to explain this to my doctor but he doesn't seem to understand or maybe he doesn't care. Has anyone else had this problem?

Dear Goe,

Did you get hit on the head or did you have a ruptured aneurysm? A doctor might offer depression meds because they sometimes can stop headaches.

Can you see a different doctor? I would not go back to any doctor or to his medical group that can or will not listen or explain his reasoning.

I didn't get hit on the head. I was just sitting on my couch watching tv. I remember grabbing my head saying omg my head is going to explode, then my next memory is 5 or 6 days later in the icu. No one has really explained what happened in any detail. Other than I had a vessel burst. I have had a constant headache since I've been home.

Dear Goe,

The burst blood vessel may be the only explanation there is. I'm sorry that happened to you! Many drugs are used for multiple purposes. The antidepressant may have a pain relieving action as well. You can look the drug up on drugs.com.

For instance aspirin has a blood thinning quality as well as pain relief. It seems as though you may have had a blood clot in the brain. It may take quite awhile to fully recover from it.

Please ask your doctor to explain the purpose of the drug you were prescribed. Pain may not be the only purpose of that prescription.
