Lifting Weights With A Diagnosed Brain Aneurysm
Thunderclap headache: Very abrupt onset within a few seconds of a very very severe headache (so called "thunderclap headache") is the most suggestive sign since this is how bleeding into the subarachnoid space (in effect bleeding from annaneurysm) within the cranium announces itself.See 2 more doctor answers
Is a brain aneurysm rare or a brain hemorrhage? I am only 19 years old, I do not smoke, I am not over weight. Living in fear of this happening to me
Rare, so no worries: A person who has anxiety and has fear of brain aneurysms (without any normal reason to be fearing brain aneurysms) doesn't have an aneurysm problem, but instead has a phobia. A phobia (excessive, irrational fear) can be of one of many kinds, and in this case happens to be of brain aneurysms. The problem is a psychological one, and so are its exam and treatment. It has nothing to do with aneurysms.
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.
Brain aneurysm=: A bulge or ballooning in a weak area of the wall of a blood vessel in the brain. In most cases, it is asymptomatic. If it ruptures, however, it can be life-threatening.
Depends: Depends on size. If small, less frequently. If large, depends on location and symptoms. Sounds as if it is already being followed. Ask your doctor about frequency and indications for intervention. Doctor about thr.
Fainting: Fainting is always a cause for concern. You should let your doctor know it has been happening and get your doctors input and evaluation.
Depends: In the correct hands, brain aneurysm surgery is less risky than it used to be 20 years ago. Unfortunately, all brain aneurysm surgeries (clipping or coiling) carry a risk for stroke and hence cannot be classified as "safe" surgeries. They are moderate to high risks surgeries depending on the size of the aneurysm and the health of the patient. Ask your doctor for details.See 3 more doctor answers
No problem until: Aneurysmal rupture, which can cause a stroke or widespread brain injury, which eventuates in cognitive loss and or speech problems. Big issue is not iq, it is survival if rupture does occur. A good neurosurgeon can save lives. And over the years, risk of normal pressure hydrocephalus, which can cause dementia.See 1 more doctor answer
May be: Your question is of the form: Can A cause B? A question of this form is almost always answered may be, because in order to answer yes or no, one has to be certain of cause and effect, which is rare in medicine. The real question is: How likely is the Aneurysm to rupture? This has been studied, and you should be able to find information on the web.
