What are the causes and symptoms of bleeding in the brain?

Any brain injury can alter your life in many ways. Therefore, you need to rely on the assistance of a qualified medical team.

Bleeding in the brain is a serious injury that, if left untreated, can lead to death. Some of the most common causes of brain bleeding include:

  • Head trauma: This is the most common cause of bleeding in the brain among people under the age of 50. An example of this would be a blow to the head during a motor vehicle accident or a sporting event.
  • High blood pressure: Over time, high blood pressure can weaken the vessel walls in your brain, thus causing bleeding.
  • Aneurysm: When a blood vessel swells and breaks, regardless of the reason, it can bleed into the brain. The result is often a stroke or death.

Some signs that you may have bleeding in the brain include:

  • Weakness in one arm and/or leg
  • Sudden onset of a serious headache
  • Seizure (despite no history of them)
  • Vision changes
  • Decreased alertness
  • Fatigue and lethargy
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea

The fact that you have experienced one or more of these symptoms doesn't necessarily mean that you have bleeding in the brain. However, due to the seriousness of this injury, you always want to play it safe.

If bleeding in the brain is not diagnosed in an accurate and timely manner, it could result in multiple injuries or death. If a loved one has suffered a brain injury, you'll want to learn more about what went wrong as well as what's involved in filing a wrongful death claim against those responsible for the injury.
