What are the symptoms of a brain bleed?
Brain bleeds occur when blood moves into the tissues of the brain, from injured vessels or structures. The bleeding can be caused by many different types of things, depending on the source of the bleeding and where the blood is found in the brain. The typical symptoms include acute onset headache, seizures, nausea, vomiting and mental status changes.
If you or your child experiences an acute onset severe headache or sudden neurologic deficit or seizure, you should go to the emergency room immediately.
