When a headache is not just a headache
Most of the time, headaches aren’t too severe and go away after a short time. But when is a headache a serious cause for concern, and when does it need emergency treatment? One of such situations is a ruptured brain aneurysm. Aneurysm is a bulge on the wall of an artery which forms when an area of a blood vessel becomes weakened.
Brain aneurysms rarely cause symptoms, unless they rupture (most of the time, they don’t). But if an aneurysm bursts, it can cause massive brain damage and even death. This is why it’s important to know the symptoms that distinguish a ruptured brain aneurysm from a regular headache.
