A brain aneurysm is an area of a blood vessel in the brain that has weakened walls. It is possible for somebody to go through their whole life with a brain aneurysm without experiencing any ill effects. They still have the potential to be very dangerous, however.
In some cases, the blood vessel can begin to bulge at the weak spot under the pressure of blood. This can lead to various symptoms that can be uncomfortable.
The aneurysm can get worse, bulging to dangerous levels and even bursting, causing blood to leak out into the brain. Such a situation is extremely dangerous and the patient’s life can be in danger. Here are a few of the signs to look out for.
Symptom #1: Dizziness
Dizziness is quite a common symptom and not usually something that you should be concerned about. It has a wide range of causes, most of which are harmless, and it will usually pass before long. It quite often happens as a result of erratic movement, which makes it difficult for the brain to coordinate itself.
Dizziness can also sometimes be an indicator that all is not well. For example, it could be a sign that the patient has an aneurysm. While you are unlikely to need a doctor if your dizziness is in the short term, you should get it checked out if it persists.
