Subarachnoid hemorrhage occurs due to spontaneous bleeding in the subarachnoid space. It presents with severe headache usually over the back, vomiting, and neck stiffness and severe cases with stroke. Due to the onset of sudden headache with vomiting it is often misdiagnosed as migraine or tension headache and treated symptomatically with analgesics. Sometimes the symptoms of headache, vomiting and neck stiffness favor meningitis. CT scan, lumbar puncture, blood investigations are the required investigations. Early diagnosis prevents mortality in these patients.
