More than enough: 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. The 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 psychiatric one, and so are its exam and treatment.

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
