There are many health issues we face every day. Flu, inflammation and headaches are common problems that countless people experience daily. We normally battle these issues by taking pills on our own, with almost no one thinking about the risks this habit may bring.
Sometimes, people just ignore the problem until it goes away, which can have major consequences on our health. Such was the case of Charlotte “Reads” Broadway from North Carolina. She and her husband Eric had 4 kids and their presence was needed at all times. Charlotte and Eric were high school sweethearts who eventually got married and were fortunate to have 4 kids.
Charlotte was suffering from headaches from an early age and she learned how to deal with them. She took pills that helped her, however she never ever believed that not seeing a doctor about it might expose her health to such a big threat. On the 1st April, 2017, Charlotte experienced the worst migraine in her life. This time, she chose to go to the hospital with her husband. They both thought that she needed a more powerful pill, however her situation was in fact life-threatening!
As Eric said to a local news station, they didn’t think it was anything serious when they got to the hospital as Charlotte was having migraines all the time. However, she was diagnosed with cerebral aneurysm, a serious cerebrovascular disease which occures due to weakness of blood vessels in the brain. This may result in a little bubble in the vessels which can put too much pressure on the brain and rupture if not treated on time, causing a hemorrhage that can have deadly results. This was the exact reason for the serious migraine Charlotte had.
2 days later, Charlotte died. Now, her husband Eric uses his terrible experience to remind anybody that headaches are highly dangerous and shouldn’t be treated on your own. Here are the symptoms of brain aneurysm you need to know in order to recognize on time:
- Loss of sensation in the face
- Upset stomach and vomiting
- Fainting or loss of consciousness
- Weakness in the limbs
- Severe headache
If the symptoms are recognized on time and you visit a medical professional, the aneurysm can be treated. This is why Eric urges anyone who experiences a splitting headache to go to the doctor– after all, you could be in serious threat!
