Autocorrections fixed- please read this instead!!
In February for 2012, I had an aneurysm rupture in the Circle of Willis & had it coiled. A week later, during an angiogram, they discovered that both of my vertebral arteries were dissected. Back into surgery for two stents to be placed. Vasospasms were mild & treated. Two weeks after the rupture, I was released from the hospital, with no deficits at all (thank the Lord!!). My doctors feel that I possibly have Fibromuscular Dysplasia as well, although an official diagnosis has not been given.
The past year has been fairly uneventful- headaches with pressure changes due to weather, mild forgetfulness & sometimes I have trouble finding the words, etc. Six month checkup MRI showed no concerns.
Fast forward to one year post rupture- yesterday I experienced a very weird visual field disturbance. In my left peripheral field, my vision was VERY blurry, and constantly moving. (Looked like your reflection would in a moving stream). This lasted for about 15-20 minutes. No head pain, but later last night, my neck was very stiff and achy. Mild headache at bedtime.
This visual disturbance looked exactly like it did the morning of my aneurysm rupture, so naturally I am concerned. (I have made appt with Neuro.)
Has anyone else experienced this months post-rupture? Or has anyone had recurring aneurysms (or new ones) after successful coiling?
