Brain aneurysms can feel like the worst headache imaginable, and if left untreated, are often fatal. What exactly is an aneurysm? It is a weakened spot in the blood vessel walls that can cause bulging in the blood vessels. Aneurysms are most common in the aorta, but brain aneurysms are also common.
It’s particularly difficult to tell the difference between a brain aneurysm and a normal headache or migraine. When a brain aneurysm ruptures, the headache is immediate and extremely severe. Nonetheless, the striking similarity in symptoms between migraines and brain aneurysms can make it easy to dismiss them as “just another headache.”
41-year-old Lee Broadway from North Carolina was no stranger to migraines, but one day she had the worst headache of her life, according to her husband Eric. They immediately went to the hospital, where it was clear that Lee was suffering from a brain aneurysm. Unfortunately, Lee tragically died two days later.
There are some warning signs that can indicate a brain aneurysm.
An unbearable headache like you’ve never experienced before
Excessive and sudden sensitivity to light
Constant feeling of nausea and nausea
Blurred or double vision
Suddenly droopy eyelids
A stiff neck in no time
numbness in the face
A remarkably sharp pain above or behind a single eye, like a sting
Apparently hearing sounds resembling explosions or gunshots
If you are struggling with any of these symptoms, or know someone who is, it is extremely important to consult a doctor or specialist. Headaches are not all the same and taking precautions can save lives.
