Brain aneurysm: Not to worry. The aneurysm is occluded and not at risk for rupture. After one year the risk for compaction of the coils and recurrence of the aneurysm is exceedingly low. The coils are MRI compatible so you can have MRI scans too. ...Read more

Is a brain aneurysm or bleed on the brain rare at 19? I get headaches, sharp shooting pains and dull tension pains. I sometimes get stiff neck.

Yes: A brain aneurysm or bleed on the brain is rare at ANY age. I can't figure why you'd jump straight to aneurysm or bleed on the brain when there are st least half a dozen wholly benign and common causes of your symptoms. I think you can safely look for somerhing else to worry about. ...Read more

Not related: Head trauma does not cause brain aneurysms, as these are congenital berry aneurysms or caused by uncontrolled chronic hypertension (Charcot-Bouchard). Trauma can cause large extra cranial vascular dissections, but these are acute to subacute. Why do you worry about an aneurysm? Would a Concierge visit with evaluation help? ...Read more

Can I do reiki and/or Indian head on lady with diagnosed brain aneurysm I am a quality,d experienced therapist. Please advise.

Brain aneurysm: Reiki and head massages are safe exercises for people with brain aneurysms. Not all brain aneurysms are the same in terms of risk for rupture. Some have a very high rate of spontaneous rupture (anterior communicating) and others rarely rupture (cavernous segment). The treatment options are: 1) observation; 2) endovascular coiling/stenting; and 3) surgical clipping. Discuss with a neurosurgeon. ...Read more

What is my risk of brain aneurysm based on my age? 26/F. Blood pressure always normal. Throbbing in head for few seconds when I stand up/bend over. Feels like a lot of blood rushing to my head?

No different: Even with Hashimoto's thyroiditis your risk of having a cerebral aneurysm with those symptoms is the same as somebody with no symptoms whatsoever. These are not the symptoms of a brain aneurysm, ruptured or intact. More likely to have sinus issues. Once in a blue moon a colloid cyst of the third ventricle or low CSF pressure will produce this picture. ...Read more
