- What are the warning signs of cerebral aneurysm?
The body will not show any signs of brain aneurysm until it ruptures. “Most brain aneurysms have no symptoms and are small in size (less than 10 millimeters, or less than four-tenths of an inch in diameter). Small aneurysms may have a lower risk of rupture,” says the Johns Hopkins Medicine Center. Sometimes, before the rupture, some precautions can be noticed which may be due to a small amount of blood leaking. Common symptoms are headache, eye pain, vision changes and decreased eye movement. Immediately after a blood vessel ruptures, a person may experience severe headaches, stiff neck, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, eye pain, and loss of consciousness. , Hypertension, loss of balance or coordination, mild sensitivity, leg pain, back pain, limited function of nose, tongue, ears and subsequent coma and death.
