Hi @lilcountry, welcome to Connect. It is certainly understandable why you would be scared. Either one of these diagnoses would be a lot to digest and it is OK to feel nervous about either. You may find the following discussion worth your time to read through, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/infundibulum-in-my-brain/. @lilcountry, if you don't mind sharing, what course of action did your current provider recommend moving forward with this diagnosis?

He is scheduling a cerebral angiogram coming up to determine if it is an infundibulum or an aneurysm. He said if it’s an infundibulum he would leave it alone, and if it’s an aneurysm, he would see what kind it was and determine what to do after he sees it. He increased the dosage of my topamax for preventative medication for migraines and told me to keep going with esgic as needed for when migraines became too much to bear. As for the “spells” he really had no answer except maybe it was stress related.
