Aneurysm concerns

Hi I'm just after some advice really please. I have a drs appointment Monday regarding my symptoms. For about a week and a half now I have been suffering with sharp pains on the right side of my head and above my right eye, watering Eye, popping in right Ear, my face feels hot, constant tinnitus, pains in neck at times, twitching right Eye, alot of pressure behind the eye. I also have pain down my left side. I am not someone who has ever suffered with migraines and these symptoms started suddenly. Some days are worse than others. I also have pressure in my skull when bending forward. My right ear feels hot. I plan on telling all this to the Dr but I just wondered if my symptoms sounded like an aneurysm and what is the likelyhood I'll be sent for an MRI. Oh and I already had my eyes checked and nothing was detected so I'm at a loss.

I understand your concern. It is worrying when waiting for tests/hospital visits.

The symptoms are very strange. Not anything I've experienced or heard others on here discuss.

I know that feeling of wanting answers 'now' but I think you'll.have to wait and see what the dr says.

I'd be interested to hear what the cause is when you find out.

Best wishes

Thankyou for the reply. Yeh head pains aren't really something I've suffered with before. I will be sure to keep you posted with the outcome.

Not really sure bc those symptoms mimic so many different ailments but I think the best thing is that you are seeking medical attention. With an aneurysm thats the dangerous part not knowing. Good Luck and God bless

Hi thankyou for asking. Well I have low blood pressure so she thinks that's what's causing the head pains and wants me to come of my tablets I'm taking to see if it makes a difference. Then she'll take it from there.

all casses are difrent i had no idea i had a problem untill i had a rupture and woke up in hospital when they told me i had a major bleed and to top it of they informed me i had another three and iv been back several times and had them coiled it helps if you have a good support system in place like family or friends tell them how you feel and try not to get stressed out keep an eye on your blood pressure you can buy a gadget for the home to take your blood reading or you can get blood pressure readings at some chemists plus you should tell your doctor of your worries good luck and i hope this helps
