Default 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?

I know this is almost a year since your post.
My experience has been: I has 2 visual field disturbance before the detection of the aneurysm, and I have had 1 or 2 after the embolization of the aneurysm.
I did not know, off course then, at first, what this was, other than that I had had a lot of headaches. I have since been to see a neuro optomologist that confirmed that this visual disturbance, which is called a scotoma, is a sign of an aura before migrane. It has connection with migrane. I also think (personally) that this has conection with aneurysm. The reason for this is that it was this visual disturbance and the head ache that made me go to my optomalogist, he ordered an MRI right away, and the aneurysm was discovered. I have not have this visual scotoma disturbance now for 2 years.
But my headaches has changed pattern to now be like Ice Pick stabbing pain in the head.
All the best
