A bulge or ballooning in the blood vessel in the brain is known as a brain aneurysm. It can leak or rupture causing bleeding in the brain.
Most brain aneurysms only cause noticeable symptoms when they rupture which leads to a subarachnoid haemorrhage.
According to the NHS Websites the symptoms of a subarachnoid haemorrhage are as follows:
- A sudden agonising headache
- A stiff neck
- Pain on looking at the light
About 3 in 5 people who have a subarachnoid haemorrhage die within 2 weeks and half of those that survive are left with severe brain damage and disability.
Brain aneurysms can develop due to:
- High Blood Pressure
- Family History
- A weakness in the wall of the blood vessel at Birth
