What are the symptoms of a brain bleed?

Let’s face it: When we reach for anything beyond our arm’s length, the job is delegated to various brain parts. It’s how we navigate life with relative ease. However, if one of these organs gets injured, things can get ugly and possibly fatal.

Of course, as intelligent beings (or at least pretending to be), one would hope that you knew this already. But what happens when there’s an injury without any physical evidence? That’s where brain bleed comes in – the invisible menace eager to mess up your day!

If you’re like most people, then odds are that you don’t have much knowledge about brain bleeds or their symptoms aside from its name alone (which probably sends shivers down your spine). Nonetheless,The Assistant has got you covered. Sit back and relax as we walk through everything about identifying a case of cerebral hemorrhage.

The Facts

Before getting into specifics on signs or indicators (It worries us a little since it seems anyone could have them) , let’s first talk facts so things don’t go entirely off-topic. A symptom is no fun thing – if untreated quickly enough; it may result in severe injury or death (Happy thoughts!), so knowing what really goes on makes catching any sign just that bit more critical.

Now Mr.Brain here is undoubtedly encased safely within the skull keeping all his organs intact with protection from external forces(Thank goodness for skulls). Despite this security measure, they remain vulnerable resulting in some complications yet unknown but possible (“You know who to blame if something unexpected happens.”)

A brain bleed can occur due to a variety of reasons such as high blood pressure damaging weakened blood vessels leading to ruptures called aneurysms affecting arteries fed by smaller vessels known as angiomas.(Fancy words right?) Anybody can end up suffering from cerebral bleeding regardless of age, sports activity or gender. (not entirely accurate as certain factors may be more prevalent in different demographics but overall a good thing to bear in mind)

The scary part? A brain bleed often goes undetected before it’s too late. So spotting any sign of its arrival is vital for timely medical intervention.

Signs and Symptoms

Now that we have an idea about the facts let’s dive into identifying symptoms using sense organs (Round of applause?)


As you already know, vision is essential and necessary in getting from one point to another without stumbling over or knocking people – who knew?! In case you experience blurriness, double vision or loss of focus in one eye even briefly, then seek prompt help especially if accompanied by other indications mentioned later—luckily hard to ignore signs such as blood leaking out clearly visible when there’s a traumatic event leading up to this.


Like anything else with life, some headaches are dull enough so that popping a pill will make them go away. And sometimes they linger long after medication has done its best possible (Hangovers anyone?) However severe pains following accidents should not be taken lightly plus accompanying pain around your neck area could indicate bleeding due to trauma caused during incidents such as car crashes sporting events and falls on your head (we don’t recommend trying just for fun) Any headache which increases upon standing sleeping laughing can also suggest larger problems at hand(and head).


It’ll probably come along with headaches (Yay!). Throwing up indicates pressure building within the skull resulting from fluid accumulation disturbing optimal circulation within the central system; usually follows headaches mentioned above(Double Yay!!) The feeling of uneasiness could knock at any time regardless of recent eating habits giving sufficient evidence regarding our body messes when hurt internally.

Lethargy/drowsiness/sleep disturbance

Dozing off at the office while customers wait for attention is not a great look. Sleeping difficulties occur as your organ responds to different kinds of stimuli – especially when brain bleeding occurs, causing them to perform poorly; it’s like Mr.Brain put his pajamas on and lies down whenever he has spare time(Lazy much?). As usual, get help before fatigue turns into unconsciousness.


Unlike our dreams where seizure activities such as twitching leading to involuntary movement are part of how we subconsciously deal with problems in waking life (or so they say) , tremors influence the body during seizures caused by cerebral hemorrhage associated with nerve disruptions leading him (our friendly neighborhood organ) susceptible to sudden behavioural changes(What happens next will surprise you…)

Memory loss/personality changes/paralysis/anxiety disorders

Brain injuries can’t be constricted or limited to specific areas luckily leading to diverse characteristics according to location. While paralysis limits limb mobility, anxiety may affect mental health–everyone exhibits a unique trait either related or entirely different regardless several studies conducted backing them up avoiding a situation mixing personal symptoms with general ones (Don’t let friends diagnose themselves using Google search!)

Are You Safe?

Well congratulations!(?) For making it this far without checking any signs for yourself thinking about physical activity(and hopefully not experiencing symptoms listed above) However, that doesn’t mean you’re completely safe from traumas resulting in cranial internal bleeding. Hence taking precautions such as wearing protective gear participating only after thorough check-ups would decrease risks(in some settings of course – don’t start donning helmets soon in your living room). Know emergency contact numbers(such common ones!)E.g., what someone should read here if trying hard enough notwithstanding their intention being nowhere near injured thus posing an unlikely addition ”Emergency contacts include police stations fire brigades or hospitals capable handling medical emergencies.”

We may have lightened up an otherwise morbid topic!(or the opposite depending on you) but identifying, and promptly seeking help for any cerebral trauma is no laughing matter. Injuries happen all the time in different environments taking various forms only to remain undetected until significant havoc has been wrecked. But knowing what steps to take if experiencing any symptoms of brain bleeding such as vision problems, headache or vomiting can help minimize damage by ensuring prompt medical attention.

Take care!(I already did!)
