Do you understand the severity of internal bleeding?

Internal bleeding is a serious medical concern that can impact your body in many ways. If not treated promptly, it also has the potential to cause death. Usually, internal bleeding is caused by a disease, a medical condition or injury.

Internal bleeding can happen in almost every part of your body, with your head and chest among the most common.

Internal bleeding in your head can result in:

  • Severe headache
  • Weakness
  • Change in vision and/or hearing
  • Loss of balance
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Changes in alertness
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Tingling in the hands and/or feet

Treatment options

To treat internal bleeding, your medical team must first pinpoint the source. There are times when the bleeding is minor, meaning that your doctor will monitor your situation with the hope that it rectifies itself.

There are also times when internal bleeding requires immediate attention. Invasive measures such as surgery may be required.

Your doctor will consider the following when deciding on treatment:

  • Your overall level of health
  • The location of the bleeding
  • The severity of the bleeding
  • The cause of the bleeding
  • If a blood vessel or organ is injured

If you have any reason to believe that you're suffering from internal bleeding it's critical to seek medical attention. Your doctor can order the appropriate tests and then decide on the treatment strategy that best suits your situation.

Depending on the cause of the bleeding, you may want to learn more about your legal rights. For example, if your injury is the result of a car accident, look into your options for holding the negligent party responsible for your injuries and related damages.

In the event that a loved one has died after an accident caused by someone else, you may want to explore the possibility of a wrongful death lawsuit.
