A/Prof. Dr. Mahen NadarajahHead of The Angiosuite-Heart, Brain & Vascular Institute at City International Hospital explained " A subarachnoid hemorrhage (hemorrhage = bleeding) is a sudden leak of blood over the surface of the brain. The brain is covered by layers of membranes, one of which is called the arachnoid layer. A subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) occurs beneath this layer.

Most people have a sudden, severe headache, followed by vomiting (being sick). The headache usually persists and people tend to describe it as the worst headache they have ever had (a “thunderclap” headache). It is common to have a stiff neck. People might also slur their speech, experience a disturbance in their vision, have sensitivity to light, or have physical problems like a weakness in an arm or leg. In more severe cases, people can collapse and lose consciousness. Some people might also have a seizure (a “fit”)."
