Hi, I have a 8mm carotid aneurysm. I am terrified of every pain in my head that it's going to burst and since being told two weeks ago I have constant pains and twinges.
I don't smoke or have high blood pressure and I only weigh 104lbs.I saw a neuro surgeon and she told me I also have a cyst on my piturity gland!She said the risk is low at 1 in 200, for the aneurysm to burst in the next 6 months. I can't lay down anymore, my head feels like it's laying on wood not pillows. I have had balance problems for years and head shakes but I have been told these aneurysms cause no symptoms. I am very afraid.
