In brief: The worst headache

Almost all patients who present with a ruptured cerebral aneurysm describe a severe headaches, or "the worst headache of my life" and that is the least severe presentation.
In more severe cases patients can have depressed levels of consciousness all the way up to a coma. A specific aneurysm location can also cause a enlarged pupil.

In brief: Varies

Nothing asymptomatic and found at death from anything else.
Leak, and rupture and sudden death can occur. More commonly, severe headache when leaks are limited and survival.
