What are the causes of burst blood vessel in eye?

Usually nothing bad: 99+% of the time this just happens spontaneously and we never know why. High blood pressure can be a cause, though. Get your blood pressure checked. If this happens repeatedly you should see your doc. ...Read more

Not normal: It is not normal to have a blood vessel burst anywhere in your body. However, trauma can cause this and , if you are on blood thinners for your heart problems, you will be more prone for the blood vessels to bleed from minimum forms of trauma. Often times, people on medications such as aspirin, coumadin, Plavix and Heparin will show signs of bleeding under the skin. ...Read more

Sounds like: some of your symptoms may be related to your fibromyalgia. It does not look like you are taking any medication for this. If you are having swelling/edema in your extremities that can also be a cause for the "burst veins". Varicose veins can also become inflamed, causing your symptoms. I would recommend you see your doctor to have these addressed. There ARE treatments for fibromyalgia! ...Read more

You should.: Blood vessels can burst in almost any location. If it is on the surface then you probably will feel some pain followed by evidence of bruising with black and blue marks. If a blood vessel deep in the body should burst then the symptoms will be different depending on the location. This could occur in the abdomen, head, chest, etc. ...Read more

Boyfriend popped a blood vessel in his arm. Is this dangerous?

It depends: This one needs more info. What do mean by popped a blood vessel? Small blood vessels called capillaries can break and cause a small bruise and it does not mean anything. Uncommon if young, age is important with this. Was there trauma? Was it a vein or artery? Did he need to go to the ER to stop it? Has it happened before? All of these are important ?'s to see if anything of concern, but unlikely. ...Read more

Yes/No: Spider veins in the legs are a common source of spontaneous bleeding, especially when one is heated as with exercise, or taking a hot bath/shower. These can be injected (sclerotherapy) for relief, and more importantly, evaluation of the leg veins with ultrasound is indicated. Should there be axial venous reflux, this can be easily fixed. See www.Phlebology.Org and visit a phlebologist. ...Read more
