18 BRAIN ANEURYSM WARNING SIGNS
Brain aneurysms are weak spots in blood
vessels that balloon out and fill with blood.
Continued blood pressure can burst aneurysms, which can cause brain damage or
death. Aneurysms are scary because they
often go undiagnosed until it's too late.
"In the U.S. alone, almost 6 million people-
that's 1 in 50-are living with an unruptured
brain aneurysm," says Daniela Rusovici, MD, a
Parrish Medical Group neurologist.
It's important to know the symptoms and
warning signs of aneurysms.
