A brain aneurysm: is an out pouching of one of the vessels inside of the brain. The biggest concern is if this were to rupture. This in turn, could cause a person to loose consciousness.

Worried I have an unruptured aneurysm. I'm overweight and might have moderately raised BP, but otherwise healthy. Vision suddenly dimmed a couple times as if lights dimmed for a second. Also other visual anomalies and localized headache on back head?


Worried I have an unruptured aneurysm. I'm overweight and might have moderately raised BP, but otherwise healthy. Vision suddenly dimmed a couple times as if lights dimmed for a second. Also other visual anomalies and localized headache on back head?

I agree this is: something that should be checked out, but an aneurysm is not high on my list. It could be a migraine variant, but dimming vision is not something you should ignore. You should see your Ophthalmologist as soon as possible, or talk with your primary care provider about seeing a Neurologist right away. I do believe imaging, probably MRI with contrast, will likely need to be done. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Why do I have aneurysms?

Most believe that this inflammation can be associated with atherosclerosis (also called hardening of the arteries) or risk factors for atherosclerosis - high bp, smoking. ...Read more

Are aneurysm's hereditary?

Are aneurysm's hereditary?

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. ...Read more
