A brain aneurysm? Why were you in the ER?
I had face numbness and signs of a stroke they determined i did not have a stroke by may have had a migrane, which i have never been diagnosed with i have headaches take 6 asprin a day. they requested a ct with contrast scan based on that info and found the aneurysm in my left internal carotid artery pointing posteriorly laterally
OK You've probably had this for some time, so I don't think you need to worry about it right now, but, potentially it can get larger, start leaking, or even rupture, so you need to see a vascular surgeon and an interventional radiologist. I think it will be advised that you have a coil placed in the aneurysm to occlude it so that it won't cause you any serious problems.
so day to day i should be ok with normal activity and follow up with pcp to schedule future action
Yes--no need to worry or change anything for now
