What are the Symptoms of a Brain Hemorrhage?
A brain hemorrhage is characterized by bleeding in or around the brain. This condition is typically labeled according to where it occurs in the brain. Generally speaking, bleeding inside the skull is referred to as an intracranial hemorrhage. Bleeding inside the brain itself is classified as intracerebral hemorrhage. Bleeding can also occur between the covering of the brain and the brain tissue (subarachnoid hemorrhage). If a blood clot develops between the skull and the brain, it is considered to be either a subdural or epidural hematoma, depending on whether it is below or above the covering of the brain.
Although headaches are often associated with brain bleeds, they are not always present. In most cases, brain hemorrhage symptoms depend on the specific part of the brain that is involved. If the bleeding occurs in the region of the brain that controls vision, there may be problems seeing. Problems with balance and/or coordination, weakness on 1 side, numbness or seizures may also occur. The speech center is located on the left side of the brain, and bleeding in this area may cause speech problems. If the bleeding is in the lower brain, where the body’s autonomic processes are controlled, the patient may become unresponsive or lapse into a coma. In some patients, symptoms of brain hemorrhage may appear suddenly and worsen rapidly. In others, symptoms may appear slowly over many hours or even days.
