3. Leg Pain
The pain of a serious aortic aneurysm could start in the back or the stomach depending on where it’s located. However, this pain would also be so intense that it can radiate to the back of the legs. This sort of pain would be extreme, almost like the sensation of body tissues tearing apart.
The amount of pain caused by a ruptured aneurysm would naturally be a lot to handle. It would involve difficulty in walking or even standing or sitting still. In some cases, the pain might even cause a person to faint, lose consciousness, or suffer other side-effects.
The feeling is not likely to go away with rest but is a signal that urgent emergency medical attention is needed. Doctors may decide to perform surgery for removing the aneurysm there and then. Having surgery for this is much less risky than waiting and risking a rupture.
