Head pain: If the head pain was sudden, Sharp and fleeting it may simply have been an irritable superficial scalp nerve. I would expect aneurysmal pain to be more lasting, throbbing and more intense. If you still have concerns, or have persistent symptoms, consult a neurologist for reassurance and peace of mind. ...Read more

Had a aneurysm coiled two years ago still have small piece unclipped having regular brian scans next scan june. Notice blood in the corner of my eye?

Unrelated: No doubt this is unrelated. Conjuctival hemorrhages don't have anything to do with the physiopathology of aneurysms or their rupture. After two years of treatment, I doubt that you are on blood thinners. Remember to follow-up, no smoking, control blood pressure. If worst headache of life then seek immediate medical attention. ...Read more

What to do if I'm feeling like one eye is more blurry now. Could this be related to arterial dissection or aneurysm?

23 y.O. Female with left side headache (just started) mild left eye pressure felt in ear, jaw and back left side of neck. Aneurysm? I'm scared.

23 y.O. Female with left side headache (just started) mild left eye pressure felt in ear, jaw and back left side of neck. Aneurysm? I'm scared.

Unlikely: I am guessing you have a close friend or relative who actually had a diagnosed aneurysm. These are rare, especially at your age. You more likely have some viral process or some other cause like projected pain from arthritis, or a toothache. Wait a day or two and then see your family doctor if the symptoms persist. ...Read more

I stopped taking topiramate for my aneurysms and now have twiching in my eye and bad headaches, is this because of stopping I never refilled for two we?

Not for aneurysms: There is no drug for aneurysm treatment. While topiramate may have been given to you for treatment for aneurysm symptoms, a symptomatic aneurysm usually needs a procedure. Visit with the md who gave you the medication to clarify the reason you are receiving it. ...Read more

Pain in right eye when looking up or to the left. Could this be brain aneurysm or something serious?

Pain in right eye when looking up or to the left. Could this be brain aneurysm or something serious?

I can't figure: Why you're posting on HealthTap instead of getting yourself to a doctor pronto if you're worried about something as scary as a cerebral aneurysm. Pain in 1 eye ONLY on elevation or nasal deviation ONLY sounds like an eye, not a brain, problem. See an ophthalmologist & have a formal extraocular movement evaluation. May not be dangerous but could turn out to be chronic & debilitating if not treated. ...Read more

Increasing frequency in headaches, watery left eye (migraine always left eye) left eye eyesight also worsening over time. Sound like aneurysm?

Migraine; maybe more: With your history of migraine headache that includes left eye symptoms it makes sense for migraine to be a reasonable cause for your vision complaint. But if your vision is worsening, then you need to seek another cause, and should see an ophthalmologist who can examine for vascular conditions - and other possible conditions - that might be responsible. ...Read more

How severe are headaches from brain aneurysm? What do people mean by pain behind the eyes? Would there be blurry vision all the time?

Headache in aneurysm: Brain aneurysm does not always cause headache. ... Depends on size, location and growth rate. It typically causes pain after rupturing and causing subarachnoid hemorrhage. Pain behind the eyes or back of the head are typical areas of pain with subarachnoid hemorrhage. Blurry vision would depend on the blood pressure and location of the aneurysm. ...Read more

I have been having head pain and pressure for two months that have not gone away I have also had eye pain and fatigue. I am scared I have an aneurysm!

I have been having head pain and pressure for two months that have not gone away I have also had eye pain and fatigue. I am scared I have an aneurysm!

Not likelyBut see Dr: Most cerebral aneurysm's aren't symptomatic until they rupture. Occasionally the rupture is preceded by 1-2 weeks of increasingly severe headache as the aneurysm expands prior to rupture. Because of the above, headache for two months is unlikely to be due to an aneurysm. Especially if you have had similar headaches in the past. Eye pain and fatigue are not symptoms of aneurysm. But, best to see Dr ...Read more
