Can aortic aneurysm symptoms be mistaken for anything else? even more so after use of "upper" drugs?
Yes--can be mistaken: Aortic aneurysm is highly unlikely in someone your age. The only people I've ever known to have aortic aneurysm have been long-term (more than 20-30 years) smokers.

More likely you're having tachycardia and anxiety from the "uppers." ...Read more

Can a symptomatic unruptured brain aneurysm stop showing symptoms headache symptoms and only show sinus symptoms?
My interpretation: Not sure what you imply by "symptomatic", as most unruptured brain aneurysms cause no overt symptoms and are merely found when MRI is done looking for explanations of migraines.

Ok, is it possible to engage in vigorous physical activity with bad heart valve and or aortic aneurysm without experiencing symptoms?
Not likely: The cardiac valve problem, especially aortic or mitral, will cause shortness of breath issues which would make it unlikely to continue what your were doing. The aortic aneurysm would have little to no symptoms with activity. Doesn't mean that the aneurysm can't rupture, in which case your symptoms would be pain and likely death. Very unlikely to happen unless the aneurysm is greater than 5 cm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
