Can a symptomatic unruptured brain aneurysm stop showing symptoms headache symptoms and only show sinus symptoms?
My interpretation: Not sure what you imply by "symptomatic", as most unruptured brain aneurysms cause no overt symptoms and are merely found when MRI is done looking for explanations of migraines. In my experience, the aneurysm does not cause headaches until rupture, which can be deadly. Aneurysm NEVER causes sinus symptoms. Can a Concierge visit help? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Unlikely: In general, the percentage of people in the US who have a brain aneurysm is 1.5 to 5% according to the American Stroke Association. It's even less likely for it to be symptomatic.

Can concussion cause brain aneurysm?And 4 months after would complications show up by now?Have headaches 2mon,I worry its complication from concussion
Concussion: Yes but a rare complication. After head trauma, an artery in the brain that is tethered or adjacent to the meninges can lead to tearing of an artery wall and formation of an aneurysm. The most common locations are the base of the skull and the pericallosal arteries along the falx cerebri. An MRI and MRA of the brain is used as a screening study to exclude a traumatic intracranial aneurysm. ...Read more
Long term dizziness (2 months). diangosis with vestibular disorder but now feeling acute nausea, vertigo, floating, hypoglycemic symptoms and facial spams?
Vertigo: Definitely sounds vestibular. You might have just developed Meniere's disease of the inner ear with acute 'attacks.'

See ENT for hearing test and balance testing, then treat accordingly. ...Read more
