Avatar n tn I had a cerebral brain aneurysm back in 2000. I have constant non stop pain in my head some days are worse than others, I can't afford to go to the Dr. and I have no insurance, what else can I do for the pain and should I be concerned about having another aneurysm?
Avatar n tn One year following the second TEE, a third TEE was completed after being evaluated for post-stroke headaches. The impression from the third TEE showed an atrial septal aneurysm "avg - 1.6 cm excursion" - "no evidence of thrombus" and no shunting.
Avatar f tn Hi - my name is Sara. I had an aneurysm which led to a stroke. I kind of knew I was having an aneurysm because I sweated for like a whole minute (shortly after waking and feeling fine) and had a horrible headache, worse than I ever had before. My stroke was a bi-product of the aneurysm. In short, I am young and I don't follow any pre-cursers of having an aneurysm/stroke (I work (worked) out like a fiend, I dont smoke, not overweight (like, at all)). Very healthy person.
Avatar f tn s was experiencing dizzy spells in December which led me to the ER. After many tests they found a small ophthalmic artery aneurysm , which medical professionals have concluded was nothing more than an incidental find. My dizzy spells have subsided by taking topamax daily however I do still feel poorly . I have developed many other symptoms over a 3 month time frame such as Raynard Syndrome, Bakers Cyst. Ganglion Cyst.
Avatar m tn I had coiling with stent done on 11 Jan 2011 for an unruptured 8.5mm right ICA aneurysm and had really bad headaches for nearly 2 weeks after. I reckon with the insertion of the stent and coiling, some trauma could occur and also the contrast dye always gives me headache. Possible that the intensity of the headache is worse due to these 2 factors. I am headache free now and have the odd headache here and there but very tolerable.
Avatar f tn m concerned. Are there increased risks of aneurysm or stroke associated with pushing? What about hormones and everything else? How long should I wait? I am just looking for a second opinion, and reassurance. Thank you.
Avatar n tn A neurosurgeon and neurologist team should be looking after her shunt and brain pressure from the stroke. It really depends on how bad it was as the outcome can be variable. However, her young age is on her side which is good. Don't lose hope and trust the docs!!!!
Avatar f tn what are the benefits or who benefits from surgery to remove a blood clot after a stroke.
Avatar f tn The only reason she survived it was because she had had a shunt inserted in her head a few years prior after a stroke. 4 of my grandmothers 6 sisters also suffered strokes starting in their 60's. My question is this (as silly as it may sound), my grandmother had a funny shaped head. Narrow/normal and the front and quite a bit larger at the back. You would never notice it with a full head of hair but finding hats etc to fit was nearly impossible.
494412 tn?1209554833 I am a 49 yr old female who had a stroke one week ago. After having a TEE, my doctor told me I had an atrial septal aneurysm. I understand what it is, but have no clue what they do about this!!! He mentioned pills or surgery - but I am not even 50. Can't this thingy be repaired? Help!!!
Avatar f tn What is the treatment plan for neck aneurysm? Can I lead a normal life after treatment without restrictions? I'm a 36 year old female who has positive signs and symptoms of neck aneurysm but waiting on conformation by mra. My cousin died at the age of 27, my maternal grandmother and both grandfather died of aneurysm. I did had valve repair surgery as a child. What was thought to be a neck mass turned out to be aneurysm.
Avatar n tn Hello, I'm a 48 yr old female, good weight. I have been having a rhythmatic, whistling, pulsing sound in my right ear now off and on for about 3 weeks. It comes and goes. Could this be a weakened blood vessel and I'm on the verge of a stroke or aneurysm? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/291852'>Hissing sound in my head</a>.
Avatar m tn After improvement he was operated on for the cerebral artery aneurysm which resulted in a stroke... My question is is it possible the cerebral artery aneurysm was a result of the accident?
Avatar n tn My question is; What is the risk of stroke with an ASD and an aneurysm? I have E-mailed you before with other concerns. I cannot have a reoperation my doctors tell me so I'm really worried about this condition. Can the opening be closed under these conditions with a transcatheter device?
Avatar m tn I assume you are interested of the seriousness and treatment options available for your aneurysm. If your atrial septal aneurysm doesn't shunt blood flow across the aneurysm from one side to the otherside atrium there isn't much that needs done other than contol blood pressure. There are medical literature and articles that suggest blood clots can form in the aneursym can form in the aneursym itself because the blood tends to pool there.
Avatar f tn Over the past year I have had progressive numbness starting in my left foot (toes) which has travelled up my leg and backside area. After both aneurysm hospital stays I had severe lower back pain and spasms. After the first aneurysms I had scan to see if there was anything detected to cause the back spasms. Nothing showed up. I still, on occassional, experience quick catching excruciating pain in lower to middle back which literally takes my breath away for a second or so then passes.
492818 tn?1290319404 s was located is that she lived long enough to have surgery to repair it but then things went horribly bad with a major stroke after surgery. With this history and my headache location should I ask for an MRI to either confirm or relieve my concern? I'm a 53 year old female. She also had several TIAs before the aneurysm rupture - should we have looked at those as warning signs?
Avatar n tn An aneurysm is a defect in a blood vessel, usually a bulging. The wall of the aneurysm is often thinner than the rest of the blood vessel & therefore prone to rupture which causes the bleeding. Your grandmother has probably had this for a long time. As to whether her fall could have exacerbated things, I don't know. She is very early into her receovery from the stroke. The road ahead is long & slow but there is hope. Please keep loving & supporting her.
Avatar n tn I was having an hemorraghic stroke (rupture of aneurysm). They do not know why I had develop the aneurysm, as I do not have high blood pressure, am not a smoker, or drink alcohol, or have family history of stroke. It seems that aneursym develop over time, but I am still in my head think that night may have caused my aneurysm to rupture. I had surgery (stent and coil embolization) since then but am scare of developing new one or rupture the existing one if not canalized properly.

Avatar n tn 1. At what smallest size in mm or cm can mri/mra of brain detect aneurysm in a 60 year old men? 2. When on a outpatient testing requisition form under "DIAGNOSIS: Headache, Cerebral Aneurysm" is written, does this mean radiologist is going to look for aneurysm in all blood vessels in the brain (not oinly in large blood vessels)? 3. At what size is aneurysm in the brain significant(risk of rupture and stroke) and at what size it is not significant and therefore surgery is not needed?
Avatar f tn Yes, you can have headaches for years after a stroke. I have had migraines for over 3 years since my stroke which the neurologists seem to think were caused by my stroke. And I have since read many posts from others who have migraines after their strokes. But there are many treatments that the doctors can do. You need to find a headache specialist or at least a neurologist.
