Dr. Oz stresses the seriousness of a condition affecting 5% of the population and strikes more women than men. One-half of those who experience a ruptured aneurysm die. Learn to detect the signs of this silent killer.
Symptoms of an unruptured aneurysm:
- Vision trouble
- Speech problems
- Impairment or loss of balance or coordination
Symptoms of a rupture:
- A small bleed, or sentinel bleed, will cause a minor headache.
- A blown-out aneurysm will cause a “thunderclap” headache – the worst headache you have ever imagined and it’s almost always accompanied by nausea and vomiting. If you experience a headache like this, go to the ER immediately.
