Q: Hi there maybe dumb question I am do terrified of having a brain aneurysm I heard of two people that died instantly of them I read you could have weak arteries your whole life and not know is thus true ? Would my doctor be able to tell if I do by blood pressure or taking my pulse ? Thank you
Answer: Well if someone died of brain aneurysm, it doesn’t mean that you will surely have that particular disease. In brain aneurysm an abnormally dilated artery is present in brain, which may put pressure on the surrounding healthy brain, this continuous pressure damages the brain. This result in certain symptoms, like head ache, blurred vision, ataxia, loss of balance, syncope, weakness of a particular area of the body, slurred speech etc. These symptoms alarms a patient that something is wrong with him and he or she go to a doctor. Sometimes, brain aneurysm, grows rapidly and may rupture, (ruptured aneurysm) which may lead to sudden death.
If you are a healthy person, and you don’t have any of the neurological symptoms, they why are you wasting you time in thinking about brain aneurysm. If someone has it, he may have some predisposing or inherited factors.
Eat Healthy, eat low saturated fat diet, exercise regularly, maintain your weight and think positively, avoid smoking and alcohol, be happy, this will help preventing a brain aneurysm.
and brain aneurysm can't be diagnosed by merely checking the pulse or blood pressure. For this specialized tests like CT scan and MRI are done.
