Brain Aneurysm

I was in an accident a few months ago and struck my head on the concrete left a couple of large welts to my forehead and left-side. During my three day hospital stay, an aneurysm was detected. Since this time; I have dizzy spells, vomiting, disorientation, vertigo and headaches. Is an aneurysm, which is caused from the blow to the head, more or less dangerous than other brain aneurysms. Quality of life has not been the same as before the accident? I am very concerned in regards to the future and frantically searching for answers.

I had a brain aneurysm that was not caused by an accident but just found due to having headaches. I had brain surgery a short time after diagnosis. You need to see a neurosurgeon ASAP

How have things turned out for you? Has your aneurysm been removed? Are you doing ok?
I had a stoke, which led them to find my aneurysm. The doctors that I have been dealing with are not sure if the symptoms I have are from my aneurysm, or the stroke. It is a struggle to make it though every day. My quality of life has went down tremendously, to the point that I have felt like giving up. (& that’s definitely not me!)

Are your headaches gone since you had your surgery?
