What are the side effects of an unruptured brain aneurysm and how can I tell if my CT with iodine scan failed to show any signs of an aneurysm ?

A small: Aneurysm generally won't cause any symptoms. A larger aneurysm could cause symptoms based on its location and what structures it is pressing on. Presumably the radiologist would have diagnosed an aneurysm if it was visible on CT, but unless the CT was specifically tailored to look for an aneurysm(CTA), a small aneurysm might not be visible on a routine CT. ...Read more

I had a brain aneurysm clipped last year and i'm still having headaches. Shouldn't they be gone?

Have it evaluated: It is certainly possible that some of the headaches may be related to surgical healing. However, there are well known long term sequelae from brain aneurysms-particularly if there was a rupture. Delayed hydrocephalus is one of those where the fluid in the ventricles does not absorb as well. This can easily be evaluated by your physician. ...Read more

A healthy 18-y/o has nothing to fear from exercise. It sounds like your real problem is severe anxiety & catastrophic think ...Read more
