Brain aneurysms: Knowing the warning signs

https://video.foxnews.com/v/5838578961001/
Good info. Thanks for sharing. I had exactly those symptoms but luckily no rupture. Once I got my BP under control the headache subsided and I have been living with them ever since. As stated earlier, I am awaiting an appointment to have one worked on. As stated in the video, nobody really knows what causes them. The only way I got to know was thru a CT scan and then MRI. Most folks just kick over with little to no warning. I consider myself extremely lucky but still get a little nervous every time I get a minor headache or feel a twinge in my grape. Do not hesitate to get checked out and take care of your BP. It could save your life.

Hostile, I don't know if this would apply to your case since the locations are different but when I had my aortic aneurysm they tested me for Marfans syndrome since it is one of the symptoms. Not sure if it applies to brain aneurysms. Turned out to be the HBP which sounds like what happened in your case.

There is an increased incidence of intracranial (brain) aneurysms and some connective tissue disorders (Marfan, Ehlers Danlos type IV, Loeys-Dietz, Neurofibromatosis, etc). 'Run of the mill' aortic aneurysms do not appear to be related to/indicate an increased risk of developing intracranial aneurysms.

Status update. I had my surgery day before yesterday here in London. They didn't install coils, instead they went with a "mesh cage" device since the aneurism was "wide necked". It's a relatively new procedure they've come out with in the last decade for these particular aneurisms which the coils just fall out. All went well and I was discharged yesterday and can fly back to Malta on Monday. I still have two more aneurisms but one is so small and the risk of rupture in next to nil. The other is in a funny spot but is still small with a low risk of rupture so its just a watch and wait game on that one. I was released with no restrictions other than to keep a tight check on my BP and can lead a normal life. I'll have to undergo regular MRI's but that's par for the course. It could be worse. Anyhow, thanks for the thoughts, prayers and support from members of this board. And Happy 243rd Marines. S/F.
