I went to a neurologist with symptoms that could be neurological in nature, including falls, headaches, dropping/spilling, slurred speech at times and nausea. He did a neuro exam, had me walk up and down the hallway, checked reflexes, listened to carotids, and listened to my head (brain?) with his stethoscope. He said the falling was due to the way I walk, and was proud to declare that I don't have an aneurysm (r/o by listening to my brain). When I told my family doc, she said she had heard of that being used to r/o aneurysm. I've searched and searched and can't find any reference to use of such a diagostic tool. Also, my mother had a ruptured brain aneurysm and her death was thought to be a AAA (going by sx.,no autopsy). Have you ever head of such a way to r/o brain aneursym?
