Unlikely: Intracranial aneurysms will rupture and cause severe headache that will last for hours or days if you stay awake and if massive will cause loss of function or loss of consciousness , but of course new onset of new headache need to be checked by a physician and may need a ct scan of the head.

Unlikely: Especially is u are 21 like you profile suggests. At 55 this is still unlikely but medical evaluation would be best if this is a repetitive problem.
