I had a craniotomy for a aneurysm clipping in 2007 and have never been the same since then. Over the years I have been developing multiple "medical issues" that are unexplainable and I am starting to feel like my family and even some doctors are beginning to look at me like a hypochondriac. I've been diagnosed with Meniere's Disease, Fibromyalgia, Angioedema, costochondritis, I suffer from migraines, I'm irritated in an overstimulated situation and cold weather is extremely intolerable to me, painful even...these are some of the things that surfaced over the years. The pain is real and a lot of it is so hard to even begin to describe. The more I research I'm realizing it all leads back to my craniotomy. When I came out of my surgery the first thing my mom said was "my daughter's not the same person" and I wasn't. Doctors need to help patients understand their issues more and offer more support for it. I think people need to be more educated on aneurysms, how to live with the after effects....because your life will never be the same!
