Brain Aneurysm Side Effects
Bleeding most common: Other side- effects, along with bleeding risk, include possible milder headaches, and/or less commonly symptoms of mass effect from some larger and giant aneurysms. Mass effect symptoms can include double vision or even weakness on one side if the body in extreme cases. Lastly, and even less commonly, some partially clotted aneurysms can cause strokes.See 1 more doctor answer
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.

MRA/CTA: If you are so concerned about a cerebral artery aneurysm, just cut to the chase, get a mra /cta brain circle of willis and know for a fact if you do have any aneurysm or not. If you do have one then go see neurosurgeon and see if there is anything that can be done instead of wasting time speculating.See 1 more doctor answer

What are common after effects for a brain aneurysm operation using the coil embolization procedure?
Rare side effects: You can have problems in three different areas after an embolization procedure: 1. The groin site where you gained access. 2. The arteries all the way up to the head. 3. The brain in the form of a stroke or a bleed. That being said, the rate of complication from a coiling of an aneurysm is extremely low in experienced hands.See 2 more doctor answers
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.See 1 more doctor answer
MRA / Cerebral Angio: A diagnostic test is necessary. The least invasive would be the MRA if there are any questions the a Full Cerebral Angiogram is indicated
I don't want to pass out, I'm really worried about a brain aneurysm. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
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. Monitoring and a discussion with a neurosurgeon about risks and potential for surgery would be warranted depending on size and severity.
Haven't exercised properly in 6 months, I'm terrified that if I work out I'll get a brain aneurysm or some sort of clot and die. But I need to get fit?
Yes: An aneurysm can cause a change in personality if it leaks or puts pressure on nearby brain tissue in the frontal lobes. It should be treated since it could rupture any time and be fatal. Recovery from a leaking aneurysm usually causes some change in the person but many times this gets better over a few years.
