Mar 4, 2019 · Internal carotid artery aneurysm in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

@lisalucier thanks, I know that my grandmother and her sister died in their 40's of a brain aneurysm. So you can see how frighten I am. I would be very active woman and I am always on the go…My job which I love can be very challenging and stressful so it was recommended that I would take some sick leave. I am in college too it's not as stressful as yet. I haven't been talking to the neurosurgeon yet as I am on a waiting list to see him. Basically my family doctor is pleased for me to rest up until I talk with the neurosurgeon. I need this gone from my head as I need to go back doing the things I used to. I am afraid to put any pressure on my brain. For instance last Friday evening I got a puncture (I trained as a mechanic) I was afraid to change the wheel incase my aneurysm bursted. I had to wait in for nearly a hour before help came. I would off sorted it out before I found out about having my unwanted neighbour in my brain.

Hi all I am 43 years old and I have just been diagnosed with ica aneurysm. It is 7mm×7mm in size. I first experienced headaches Aug 2018 and in Sept 2018 my right hand side of my face went numb. I went to a&e had a ct and mri scan. They noticed that my main artery under my right ear was twisted. So I had to wait for a mra scan. I had it done in Jan 2019 I have to wait now to see a specialist to see the next moves.
