A brain aneurysm is a bulging or ballooning in a brain blood artery. An aneurysm frequently resembles a berry on a stalk. It can leak or rupture, resulting in brain hemorrhage (hemorrhagic stroke).
The main sign of a ruptured aneurysm is a strong headache. This headache is frequently regarded as the “worst headache” ever felt.
Anger and sadness increase blood pressure, which can lead to the rupture of an aneurysm.
