I suffered a brain aneurysm at age 25…it occurred during the middle of a job interview…I felt the worse headache of my life it felt like my skull was caving in between my eyes. I had to stop the interviewers to let them know I was experiencing a horrible headache…I then became really hot and began vomiting ….911 was called and I was told that I was having a chronic headache caused my stress but I continued to vomit and felt horrible so I was taken to a local hospital nearby which was right down the street from the place I was interviewing which is where I found out I had a bleed on my brain . I was then rushed to a larger hospital via helicopter where I was kept stabilized over night and had emergency surgery early the next morning. My family all came to make sure I was ok and to see me before I went off to surgery since no one really knew what the outcome could potentially be. I came out of surgery and remained in the hospital for 2 1/2 weeks. I spent two months out of work recovering and resting. I was blessed to have no deficiencies following my aneurysm . I returned back to my job at that time full time like I hadn’t missed a beat. I am now employed with the organization where I interviewed and had the aneurysm and I’m doing great here and I’ve had an opportunity to advance and begin my career as a staff development trainer and supervisor over the department.I am now 28 years old and the only thing left I would say from my aneurysm is headaches, I have them from time to time but I take Tylenol or Aleve, drink herbal teas and take a moment to remind myself to relax and unwind. I am so blessed and I hope my story reaches someone. I’m grateful for finding this site to share my story. #survivor

Your story is almost identical to mine - except I was not in a job interview when I got my headache. What a time to have it happen! SO glad all has worked out for you since. Like you, the main symptom I am left with is headaches, and finally “post stroke migraines” is recognized as a real thing by medical professionals. Thank you for sharing your story. So happy that you are doing well!
Thank you Dorothy!
