Brandi’s Story (Brain Aneurysm)

Brandi's Story (Brain Aneurysm) Hi there. My name is Brandi and I am 26 years old.

In June of 2013, I was driving home from work and I didn’t feel so good. I was used to having migraines, I have had them for several years, so I didn’t think anything of it at first. But then as I was driving I couldn’t really think or focus… I was just there. I do remember praying in my mind, “God please just let me get home.”

I knew something wasn’t right. I felt numb on my right side (which is where my migraines always are). I made it home and laid on the couch. For a minute I was still trying to take in what was going on and got scared. I started crying and I called my mom who came home and said, “Who punched you in the face?” She said it looked like I had been hit. I told her I wasn’t sure but I didn’t feel good.

She took me to the ER. There we thought it was maybe a stroke. My identical twin sister who also gets migraines had the same thing happen to her a year or two before. She was at work so they rushed her to the ER by ambulance. They sent her home saying it was just migraines. I had a ton of tests run including a spinal tap. They ruled a ton of things out including a “brain aneurysm.”

Then after doing several tests they said it was in fact a “brain aneurysm” (very small, it was like a two). I left the hospital and a couple of days later went back with a massive migraine. They watched me overnight and sent me home. They advised me to get outpatient treatment soon. I have put it off but finally made an appointment to go for a check up. My migraines are getting worse and the pressure is right behind my right eye. I have been to the eye doctor several times and they say it is defiantly not my eyes. My appointment is November 21, 2013. It is still a ways off but I am glad the appointment is made. My twin sister is going to get checked for one as well after she has her baby boy. I am praying for all of you!!

  1. update on my Aneurysm. I went to the doc. last November and she wasn’t sure there was actually an aneurysm. she sent me to go get another test. which i failed to do. I had been sent back to the hospital Feb 2014 and they did some more tests. There is No Aneurysm. I know that with all the Prayers that went up for Me….It was Def GOD that had healed me from that Brain Aneurysm. I truly Believe in the Power of Prayer! This is My Testimony that GOD has given me to be able to Share with others!
    I am Praying for each of You!
    -Love Bray.

    • Brigitte,

      Thank you so much for your kind words! God is so so good, and I am Healed because of our Loving God! Each situation we face, can either make us or break us in our walk with God, it is ultimately up to us to decide if we are going to lean on God through it all or if we are going to get angry and turn from him.

      I am praying for you, always!

      Love, Brandi
