A mother has told how she collapsed and “almost died” from a brain aneurysm just days after twice her splitting headaches were dismissed by doctors.
Emma Tabor, now 38, had the aneurysm three years ago when she started feeling heavier on the right side of her body and suffering from very bad headaches, reports Leeds Live.
She has been unable to make a complete recovery still suffering from tiredness, memory loss and partial blindness – but she is grateful to be alive.
Knowing something wasn’t right, she visited A&E where doctors told her she was “too young to have a brain aneurysm” and that it was merely a migraine.
