What Does A Brain Aneurysm Feel Like
5mm in most cases: It depends on the location and as well as if it has grown, but 5mm is a good cutoff that many people use while others use 7mm.See 1 more doctor answer
How long does a Brain Aneurysm take to develop? I had an MRA 7 years ago and it was normal. Could it develop this fast? I am 28.
Yes: Aneurysms often form in an area of focal weakness of the vessel wall, most commonly at a bifurcation of 2 vessel branches. Some people are more prone to have them, and some form for unknown reasons. They can develop at different rates for people depending on many factors including underlying connective tissue abnormalities, blood pressure, etc. I'd say 7 years is more than enough time to form.
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.
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
Berry aneurysm: The most common and classic brain aneurysm is the berry or saccular aneurysm. These appear as a ballooning at the branchpoints of cerebral vessels typically at the base of the brain in the circle of willis. These are usually asymptomatic until there is a devastating hemorrhage from them. The treatment is to obliterate the aneurysm with surgery or endovascular (coiling techniques).See 1 more doctor answer
Artery wall bulge: Normally blood vessels are smooth and even like a sipping straw. Occasionally the wall weakens from age, trauma, atherosclerosis, plaque and the wall bulges out kind of like blowing bubblegum. The wall becomes thinner than normal thus is prone to rupture which allows for bleeding to occur. Aneurysms can occur on any artery cerebral (brain) is common, renal, aortic size is important.
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.
No: Prognosis is bad if untreated, undetected. 25 % will die immediatly, 25 % later in hospital stay, 25 % will have severe neurological problems. Early detection early intervention had good prognosis add to w**f I am glad you survived, early intervention is the answer good luck.See 4 more doctor answers
