What are the symptoms of brain bleeding?

Brain bleeding is extremely serious, as this isn't something you can see with your own two eyes.

While the symptoms of brain bleeding can vary from one person to the next – based on severity and location – there are some that typically come into play.

Some symptoms will occur immediately following an injury, while others develop over time.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of brain bleeding:

-- Weakness in one or both arms or legs

-- Vomiting and nausea

-- A severe headache (often sudden)

-- Seizure

-- Changes in vision

-- Lethargy and fatigue

-- Difficulty swallowing and/or speaking

-- Loss of coordination and balance

-- Loss of consciousness

These symptoms can be cased by ailments other than brain bleeding, but they should always be taken seriously.

If you experience any of these symptoms after a blow to the head, such as in a motor vehicle accident, it's essential to receive immediate medical treatment.

Brain bleeding is dangerous, even if it is treated in a timely manner. Fortunately, with the right treatment strategy, it's possible to remedy this injury and avoid future complications.

In the most serious of situations, brain bleeding is left untreated and the person passes away as a result. The key to avoiding this is to receive medical care as quickly as possible.

If a loved one passes on as the result of brain bleeding, you should turn your attention to the cause of the problem. You may find that another party, such as the person who caused a car crash, can be held responsible.
