Vertebral artery dissection, pseudo-aneurysm affecting vision, balance and causing pain, taking tramadol ,ibuprofen. Further tests or treatment required?

I have been diagnosed with a vertebral artery dissection and psuedoaneurysm. First, the left side was affected, and now there is also pain in the right side. My vision has been affected, as well as balance. I am currently taking aspirin and tramadol with ibuprofen for pain. I am waiting for a referral to another hospital. Is there anything else I should be doing. I feel like a walking timebomb!

I am sorry for the symptoms you are suffering.
It will be difficult to treat your disease because you have already start the right treatment.
It will be wise to control your vertebral artery periodically with brain MRI and MRA and if no changes are seen you will continue the same medication.
Wish you all the best
