Let me at the outset tell you that this may not be anything significant. Stress, anxiety, overwork may be the underlying factor. Your recent headaches too are likely to be tension headache. A tension headache is a headache caused by tense muscles in the face, neck, or scalp. These headaches give a feeling of tightness around the head. The neck muscles can also become sore and tight. Tension headaches can be caused by staying in one position for a long time, such as reading, playing video games or using a computer for long duration. Your family history of brain aneurysm may be playing some role in the back of your mind and may likely be the predisposing factor for your symptoms. The symptoms of brain aneurysm are;
Neck pain or stiffness,
Fear with light (photophobia),
Fear due to sound (sonophobia).
Since you do not have these symptoms, brain aneurysm is not suspected. Having said that; there are recent recommendations that people who have Family History (first degree relative) of brain aneursym should have screening like magnetic resonance arteriography (MRA) for the cautionary reason. The incidence of detection of brain aneurysm by this screening is one in one thousand. But since aneursym can have serious consequences, so it is worth the cost and time. Please read this resource for the screening:
So you can discuss this with your doctor. On one side you would be able to rule out the aneurysm and secondly you would be able to relax. Thus if this is playing in your mind and causing subconscious anxiety; that would be removed.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
