Hemorrhagic Stroke Symptoms - Oren Zarif - Hemorrhagic Stroke

Depending on the part of the brain that is affected, a person suffering from hemorrhagic stroke can exhibit many symptoms. The severity of a stroke will determine the type of treatment needed. For example, patients suffering from a stroke in the frontal lobe of the brain have a six-fold greater risk of developing the condition during pregnancy than women in the general population. A stroke victim who experiences any of the symptoms described below should immediately seek medical attention.

Hemorrhagic stroke is the most dangerous type of stroke because it is caused by bleeding in the brain. It can occur due to a ruptured blood vessel or by bleeding in brain tissue. Because brain tissue is fragile, it may bleed due to the lack of blood supply. It can occur as soon as two weeks following an ischemic stroke. The earlier this happens, the better, because treatment can significantly reduce the damage to the brain cells.

Hemorrhagic stroke is typically caused by bleeding between the layers of membranes that surround the brain. The pressure from the leaking blood can cause severe damage to the brain. Approximately one in 20 strokes is caused by hemorrhagic stroke. Symptoms of hemorrhagic stroke include confusion, severe weakness, and loss of bodily control. Some people experience an intense, thunderclap headache that can last up to a few seconds.

Hemorrhagic stroke can also cause seizures. If this is the case, a doctor may prescribe anti-seizure drugs if the patient experiences any type of seizure. Another common symptom of hemorrhagic stroke is a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid on the brain. This buildup of fluid can result in further brain damage, and is more likely to occur after intracranial bleeding or subarachnoid hemorrhage.
