As you didn't lose consciousness or develop neurological symptoms (weakness, numbness) I surmise you will recover. Stay healthy &Good luck. ...Read more

I've been having sharp pains in my head. Had a MRI that showed a possible brain aneurysm but they did not see the bump on the mra, what could be wrong?

MRA more definitive: If the mra is negative, you can probably be rest-assured that you don't have an aneurysm. A ct angiogram of the brain provides higher resolution. The MRI looks more at brain tissue so likely had indirect evidence for a possible brain aneurysm but the mra is a more direct brain vascular imaging study, the results of which would trump what the MRI suggested. ...Read more
