Dear Amymarie, welcome to the medhelp forum. The dictum is that unruptured aneurysm is usually asymptomatic unless they grow large or press vital structures in the brain.  Otherwise, ruptured aneurysms can cause subarachnoid hemorrhage with symptoms of sudden onset severe headaches, brief loss of vision or consciousness, stiff neck. Unruptured aneurysm manifests as double vision, new unexplained headaches and pain above and behind the eyes. I would strongly suggest an urgent neurosurgical evaluation. You would need a CT/MRI brain and angiogram to confirm the diagnosis. Surgical clipping and coiling are the proposed surgeries. Wish you all the best and take care.
