A healthy 18-y/o has nothing to fear from exercise. It sounds like you have more of a problem with severe anxiety & catastrophic ideation than with exercise. You may want to consider addressing that. ...Read more

You can tell: If it is a ruptured aneurysm, headache is classically so severe, it is described as "worst in my life", and is associated with stiff neck, nausea and vomiting and perhaps rapid coma. Although rarely, we have found aneurysms in migraine pts, in my opinion these were co-morbidities unrelated to the headaches.
