I can feel with you. The same thing happened to me and only my persistent complaints resulted in MRAs, where a fistula was found and I had open brain surgery within days. I do not know, what would have happened otherwise. I probably would not be here. And what caused the neurologist not to take it serious is, that I looked so well.

My aneurysms were a cause of endocarditis. I was born with a heart defect that went unnoticed. I became very ill and because I was young and looked good ,my illness was dismissed. I finally went to the ER with severe pain in my chest. I was finally given an echocardiogram. I had endocarditis and was sent home on a pic line and told I needed open heart surgery but I had to wait until the heart infection cleared up. I called my doctor one day complaining of a bad headache. He dismissed it. That night my head blew up. I had emergency Brain surgery and a MRI found one more aneurysm and I was opened up again. Three months later I had two open heart surgeries. I had another heart surgery 12 years ago and am expected to have one more. The doctor's always say " but you look so good". I have been having Thunder clap headaches. I really have lost faith in western medicine.
