Question Brain Aneurysms

I have a question
I get headaches at the top of my head and my neck really hurts when I get these. I am very scared because 4 people that are kin to me somehow have died of brain aneurysms. I know that puts me at high risk for one.I am so scared to go and get checked!! Please Help

Re: Brain Aneurysms

I totally understand how you feel. My mother died this way quite young and we were basically informed at the hospital that as we came from a long line of people who died prematurely in this kind of way we too should get checked out. Irresponsibly I never have because I didn't want to be aware of a ticking timebomb in me. I wanted to enjoy my kids without fear as long as I could.

I however believe I am now being stupid about this. Please get checked out because you can have these aneurisms 'clipped' quite often and I guess I'd rather have that than my children wake up one day without a mother, like I did.

Good luck
