Can hitting your head cause brain aneurysm? Mild to severe head trauma with pain resolution after 4 minutes.
No, not possible.: No, trauma to the head cannot cause an aneurysm. But I want to make sure we are using the terms in a similar fashion. An aneurysm is an unstable blood vessel, a bleed in the brain is a different process. A hard enough trauma could cause bleeding in the brain or it could (rarely) cause rupture of an existing aneurysm. ...Read more

Yes and no: He needs to rest and recover. Then he needs to return to normal activities but be cautious. Repeated concussion can be very serious. However, over protection is also not good.

Do something else: If trying to stay on the safe side, avoid over-using the brain after a concussion. That means don't study too vigorously, don't take an SAT practice test (nor the real thing), and don't spend time worrying about masturbation. Over-worrying is over-using the brain, so over-worrying is to be avoided. Also, if trying to be safe, just think of masturbation as having the intensity of a sport. ...Read more

Symptoms lasting past 10-14 days should be consulted by a neurologist and perhaps even a MRI to be sure nothing else is going on. ...Read more

A neurologist may provide relief of this with medications such as Amantadine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
