Stroke is a medical emergency and the third leading cause of death in the U.S. It occurs when a blood vessel in the brain bursts or, more commonly, when a blockage develops. Without treatment, cells in the brain quickly begin to die.

RELATED CONCERNS and WARNINGS:
High Cholesterol
High Blood Pressure
Type 2 Diabetes
Dizziness; clumsiness/weakness; confusion; nausea and vomiting; discomfort sleeping on one side, and more…
.
According to medical professionals:

A transient ischemic attack (TIA), or mini-stroke are often a warning sign of a future stroke. There are several causes of TIAs including blood clots, occluded arteries, leaking blood vessels due to high blood pressure. The symptoms of a TIA depend on the particular region of the brain that is affected. Neurologic deficits, speech and vision problems, and confusion are common symptoms. Treatment initially is urgent. If you or someone you know is having a TIA call Emergency (in USA dial 911) or activate your local EMS system.”

Another Way to Help You Remember Stroke Warnings

It might be helpful to remember just the most important symptoms and signs of stroke using the memory aid of “F-A-S-T,” as illustrated below:

Developed by the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Stroke Team; Produced by the Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention and Control Program, Massachusetts Dept. of Public Health, with funding from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Mini-Strokes Aren’t Mini-Problems

No matter how mild or short-lived the symptoms of a mini stroke might be, it is extremely important that you get immediate medical assistance after you start feeling stroke-like symptoms.
Even if you had a mini stroke a few days ago you should still seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Brain Aneurysm Overview

Brain aneurysms occur because of weakness in the wall of an artery in the brain that causes a small bulging or ballooning.

An aneurysm by itself does not cause symptoms and may be found in up to 10% of the population.

Symptoms occur when blood leaks from the artery into the subarachnoid space (the area that surrounds the brain and spinal cord that is filled with cerebrospinal fluid) or into adjacent brain tissue and causes inflammation or even brain tissue compression. Severe headache, stiff neck, and vomiting most commonly occur.

Usually, there is a sentinel or “warning” headache with a small leak of blood. This is a sign that one should seek help and have his or her symptoms evaluated. The second bleed tends to be more catastrophic, causing significant brain damage.

The diagnosis of brain aneurysm and subarachnoid hemorrhage includes a high index of suspicion by the physician. A CT scan of the brain is the first test and is helpful 95% of the time. A lumbar puncture may be performed to look for bleeding if the CT scan is normal and an aneurysm has not been ruled out.

Treatment for a ruptured aneurysm depends upon the patient’s presentation and potential for recovery. Neurosurgery to place a clip across the aneurysm or interventional radiology to place platinum coils into the aneurysm may be appropriate options.

Symptoms of a Brain Aneurysm

There are some patient complaints that cause a fair amount of angst for physicians, because certain words conjure up fear of missing a potentially fatal diagnosis that might be curable if found early. It has been drilled into most medical students that a patient complaining of “the worst headache of their life” likely has a subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a leaking brain aneurysm and action needs to be taken immediately. Even with improved technology, the diagnosis of a brain aneurysm hasn’t changed much in a generation. However, not all patients with headaches need a CT scan and/or a lumbar puncture. Unfortunately, the worst headache term is sometimes exaggerated by patients and the art of medicine is appreciating the severity of a patient’s pain and deciding how aggressive to be in trying to make the diagnosis.
