I found out a couple days ago that a friend of mine died of a brain aneurysm, the a couple days later I start feeling pain in the back of my head, like sharp burning pains that only last a few seconds but come on through out the day. It scares me. Nobody has ever had a anerysum in my family, I don't have high blood pressure, I do smoke occasionally, I've only hit my head once when I was little and it bled a little... I just can't get over this fear. And the sharp pains I get don't help it's make me think I will pass out but I don't... also the only person in my family that had a brain tumor was my cousin and she was born with it.
