I too have been a migraine suffer, but just recently found out that I have a Left Cavernous Brain Aneurysms. My Neruo failed to dx for 2 years and still doesn't to this day accept the dx. I have been to Indianapolis and Chicago and they both confirmed the Brain Aneurysm from my films taken by my local Neruo. I have had a MRA done as well as a CTA, the CTA confirmed what the other MRI's showed.
the migraines get so bad I'm in bed for days and so sick at my stomach!!! speach, balance vision problems are a daily thing. they told me it they thought it was MS but my 9 brain lesions wasn't enough to make a dx! so now they are calling it Mini stokes unless I have more symptoms.
All I was told was to watch for the headache to feel like I was hit in the head with a bat!! then I would know that it ruptured!!! I have been told it only takes 8 seconds to bleed out from this, and I currently live 4 1/2 hours from Chicago!! They have told me the risks of doing the surgery before rupture were greater for stoke and/or death, than the risk of rupture if I were to just let it be Gods will.
My life has Changed in the last 6 months!!! at this point in time I'm going with God's will. I have 2 children, 15 and 11 at home and a husband of 22 years, I'm 43 years old and I'm not ready to give up yet!!! the depression has sat in really good at this point. I feel like my life has gone completely out of control and there's nothing I can do about
it! but pray.
I guess what I'm trying to ask is, will a rupture feel like I'm being hit by a bat??? I have so many headaches daily!!! and the panic that sets in each time, wondering if this will be it!! I had to leave a full time Supervision job because the stress is too much! I feel like I have walked right into a nightmare and I keep praying I'll wake up soon...
Thanks for taking the time to hear me out... I didn't mean to jump in and dump on everybody!!
Just really confused right now!!
