Symptoms of a bleeding brain

Trauma is one of the leading causes of a brain bleed or a hemorrhage. This could come from a fall off of a ladder at work, for instance, or a car accident.

It's important to note that this could be a closed injury, meaning there's not external bleeding or penetration into the skull. This is why people sometimes assume they haven't been hurt when that couldn't be further from the truth.

To ensure that you get prompt treatment, be aware of these symptoms:

  • A headache that comes on very suddenly and is quite severe. This is more than a mild discomfort, but more akin to a migraine.
  • Issues with your vision. It's hard to see, shapes swim before your eyes, or there is blackness at the edges of your vision.
  • You have trouble swallowing.
  • Your coordination gets notably worse. You lose your balance or nearly do, and just walking across the room is hard.
  • It's difficult to talk. People start to notice that you're slurring your words and you don't sound like yourself.
  • You're generally confused. You don't know what's going on and you don't process information quickly. People have to tell you things repeatedly.
  • You feel lethargic and weak. In the worst cases, you could actually pass out.
  • You have a seizure.

Now, bleeding can be the symptom of an injury, but it can also be the cause, leading to more extensive brain injuries if nothing is done. This is why it's so important to get treatment at a medical center right away. This can be costly, so be sure you know if you have a right to financial compensation.
