What is an aneurysm? An aneurysm can occur in nearly any artery in the human body, and occurs when a weakened wall in an artery swells from the force of blood flowing through the vein. It is not rare for a person to suffer from an aneurysm with no symptoms until the artery ruptures.
What are the symptoms of a ruptured aneurysm?
Symptoms can include:
- Pain in the area where the rupture occurred
- Clammy skin
- Nausea and vomiting
There can be additional symptoms associated with the location of the ruptured aneurysm. A ruptured aneurysm is a medical emergency; if you experience these symptoms call 911.
