Aneurysm Vs Hemorrhage
If pat. Develop subarachnoid hemorrhage is there is need to evaluate 1st degree relative for aneurysms?
See link: From www. Bafound. Org--"if two or more members of the family are affected with brain aneurysms, then aneurysm screening (with brain mra or brain cta) is usually recommended for at least the first degree relatives over the age of 25 of those affected." not usually recommended for single instance.See 1 more doctor answer
My sister died from ubarachnoid hemorrhage and I wanted to know if smoking meth can cause a burst aneurysm.
Yes it can: I'm sorry to hear of your very painful loss. Among its many dangerous effects, smoking meth increases blood pressure and heart rate a lot. This can certainly cause a burst aneurysm. All it takes is one episode with drugs like this (which includes stimulants like cocaine). If there was an autopsy, drug screen may have been done. Hoping you are not on such a path yourself. Be well.See 1 more doctor answer
Can severe chronic anxiety and panic attacks be critical to your health? As in cause aneurysm or brain hemorrhaging? (23 old, female, good health)
Feels, but not: In a healthy individual, panic attacks are not dangerous, although they feel that way. A Harvard study (2007), found a link between panic attacks and heart risk in postmenopausal women. This link has not been clarified, but a recent Australian study (2015), suggested that, in some people, the symptoms of panic attacks might represent a musdiagnised heart condition, but again, highly unlikely.See 1 more doctor answer
Is a brain aneurysm rare or a brain hemorrhage? I am only 19 years old, I do not smoke, I am not over weight. Living in fear of this happening to me
Rare, so no worries: A person who has anxiety and has fear of brain aneurysms (without any normal reason to be fearing brain aneurysms) doesn't have an aneurysm problem, but instead has a phobia. A phobia (excessive, irrational fear) can be of one of many kinds, and in this case happens to be of brain aneurysms. The problem is a psychological one, and so are its exam and treatment. It has nothing to do with aneurysms.
Hi doctors found me epilepsy 2 years ago, I have by now 5 seises. Month ago I had cerebral hemorrhage I have 3 MRI and 2 CT can it be AVM/aneurysm?
Chances of a 19 year old having an aneurysm/brain hemorrhage? Had CT and MRI scans a year ago. All normal. But suffering pressure in head all week
Detection: If you are very concerned ct scans and mri's of the brain can detect aneurysms.
Stroke: All 3 can potentially cause a stroke.
Aortic?: For aortic aneursyms: we are not quite sure what actually causes an AAA to form in some people. The leading thought is that the aneurysm may be caused by inflammation in the aorta, which may cause its wall to weaken or break down. Most believe that this inflammation can be associated with atherosclerosis (also called hardening of the arteries) or risk factors for atherosclerosis - high bp, smoking.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Stable aneurysms (small and not growing) usually have no symptoms. .. Large or growing aneurysms, or those about to rupture usually cause pain (abdomen and/or back) and problems with organs that have had their artery branches from the aorta closed off (e.g. Intestines, kidneys, legs, etc.See 1 more doctor answer
Not Mendelian: Not hereditary in the mendelian sense. Some families have higher incidence of aneurysms. Cofactors such as hypertension, diet and smoking habits may play a role in this. Connective tissue disorders are hereditary and some of these are associated with aneurysms but this is an indirect effect. I do not routinely screen family members but a negative mra can be reassuring.See 1 more doctor answer

Variable: An aneurysm is basically a weak spot in a blood vessel that enlarges in a ballon-like fashion. Arteries in the brain have very thin walls so that aneurysms may rupture and cause a stroke. Aortic aneurysms may rupture and lead to fatal bleeding (that is how einstein died). If any questions check with your doc. Some small aneurysms have very low risk and are watched closely.See 1 more doctor answer
Enlarged blood vesse: An aneurysm is an enlarged blood vessel typically created by a weakness in the wall. The pouching is generally thin and weak and prone to rupture. Think of a tire that gets bubbles in its wall before popping. They can happen anywhere, but aorta and brain are common. They have many causes, but high blood pressure and smoking are often factors.See 1 more doctor answer
