Blood On The Brain After A Fall
When body parts start to "fall asleep" due to sitting or laying in certain positions, how does this affect oxygen/blood flow to brain and body?
My dad fall and have a blood in the brain, he doesn't need a surgery, he have amnesia and hallucination. How can I help him?
Watch him.: Make sure the neurologist follows the patient with imaging studies ( ct or mri). He/she may order medicines for hallucinations . Amnesia may improve by itself or stayed the same. There are drugs for hallucinations. Just be supportive taking pt to appointments and reminding him what he has to do. Read about falling precautions . He might need institutionalization if difficult to handle. ...Read more
A relative f mine hs been diagnosd wd a clot in his brain aftr experiencng a fall thru a CT Scan. He hsdiabetes, kidney issues & blood pressure.
I lose my balance, fall, feel light-headed and sometimes faint. Had a heart MRI, brain MRI, blood tests and all came back normal.What's up?
Balance: Falling is a concern because it can lead to injury. If lots of tests do not show the reason, it may be a medication you use. Side effects of some medications include imbalance, and that would not show up on any tests. There are other possible causes that will not show up on MRI also. You should consider a movement disorder neurologist, as they also have experience with many balance disorders. ...Read more
Dr say 5-10% chance of brain bleed from blood thinner meds is high risk? Mom has blood clots from fall in brain and DVT 1 dr says meds, 1, 1 not sure
Filter: It does appear that anticoagulant therapy would be risky in this situation. An alternative is to insert an IVC filter to prevent the blood clot from traveling from the leg to the lungs. Of course the attending physicians ,who know all the findings, are best qualified to give advice in this case. ...Read more

How long does it take to get over a minor cuncussion assuming that is what the doctors meant, on the brain. With just a little blood on the brain.
I have had a lot of head injuries in the past year and and fine now should I worry about blood on the brain? meaning concussion not knock out
No: It is important to continue to follow up with your physician for serial neurological examinations. Bleeding on the brain (stroke/hemorrhage/hematoma) would be indicated by noticeably worsening neurological symptoms (vision change, focal weakness or sensory loss etc), nausea or worsening headache. If you continue to feel well, then bleeding would not be suspected. ...Read more
Help docs! i'm trying to find out what causes blood on the brain of a child could it possibly be sinusitis?
Unlikely: A complicated sinus infection in a child can result in lots of problems but it would be rare to have bleeding in the brain from that alone. ...Read more
If you had a concussion and a little blood on the brain that they thought would desolve or go away on its own but showed up on a MRI 3weeks lat then?
MR is very sensitive: Mri is very sensitive in detecting blood products. It is even capable of staging the age of the bleed as the imaging characteristics of blood on MRI are variable and change with the age of the blood. So as long as your hematoma is evolving in expected fashion (based on mri) and have not changed in size it is ok. Hemosiderin (blood break down product) can be detected on MRI years after the bleed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
