Brain Aneurysm?

Hello everyone. I am 18 years old and it pretty good health. I do have an anxiety disorder and OCD.I am on medication for this. I would like some opinions please. No rude comments please.
I have this fear that I may have a brain aneurysm. I don't have any specific reason that I think this but the fear is starting to take over my life. I cant even focus at work because I worry so much. I just recently moved into a new apartment and i have been under a lot of stress. I was sick about a week ago with a common cold, runny nose, headache, watery eyes, sneezing. After i was getting pain in my head and my eyes from my cold I started worrying about my brain again, I had a headache today but ibuprofen took it away very quickly. I dont have vision problems or dizziness. I stay awake most nights googling signs and symptoms and than I convince myself that I may have it. I can barely sleep because I am so scared that I wont wake up. This is really starting to take over my life. What should I do? & Do you think I have an aneurysm?

The only way to find out is to get tested by a doctor.
There was a major story in NY about Lisa Colagrossi an ABC reporter dying of a brain aneurysm yesterday. She was 49.

Re: Brain Aneurysm?

Hi! I really sympathize with you! I'm 28 and have dealt with GAD/OCD and Health anxiety most my life. I know what going through. I'm currently worried about tons of stuff at the moment. From person looking in on your situation it was just a cold that causing your headache. Try to do yoga or something to calm you and try to find a therapist it does help a bit, it's definitely better then living in fear 24/7.
Relax your okay if your really worried go to your family doctor and he can do a work up but from what your saying it sound like bad headcold!
I'm here if need to talk I know how your thought process works, I go through this myself and it's horrible feeling when you feel so scared. We can get through this !
