Will a broken blood vessel in the neck heal on its own?

Will a broken blood vessel in the neck heal on its own?

Usually 7 to 10 days: If a vein is bruised this usually results in bleeding either under the skin to form a hematoma (trapped clotted blood) or from the skin directly. Veins injured below the skin with a hematoma will take about 7 to 10 days to heal while a vein bleeding from the skin will usually stop with direct pressure and heal within 5 to 7 days.

What is the best radiologic testing to find damage to the blood vessels of the neck?

It depends: It depends on what they are looking for. Conventional angiography is still considered the 'gold standard'. However, it is invasive. In practice, lower risk non-invasive tests like CT angiography, MR angiography, or sonography can answer most clinical questions.

When I bend my head forward I get dizzy or side to side MRI was fine, could it be blood vessels? I start p.t. for vesbular therapy on neck tomorrow.

When I bend my head forward I get dizzy or side to side MRI was fine, could it be blood vessels? I start p.t. for vesbular therapy on neck tomorrow.

Could be.: Not as likely in your age. Vertebral artery narrowing can cause dizziness. These vessels can be damaged in neck trauma. If you have had no recent accidents then they are probably ok. These vessels can become narrow when people are 50 or older. If therapy does not work, ask your doctor to check the blood vessels in your head and neck.

I experience painful blood vessels in hands feet, legs and arms, burst veins, cramp, painful spasms in neck, tinitus and tingling in hands and mouth?

I experience painful blood vessels in hands feet, legs and arms, burst veins, cramp, painful spasms in neck, tinitus and tingling in hands and mouth?

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!

Not normal.: That doesn't sound normal. Are you having any other symptoms? This could be an infection, either current or yet-to-come. Perhaps a doctor should have a look.

My throat hurts. It looks kinda red, like I can see blood vessels, & it just looks yucky. Also yellowish tint in parts. Something bad wrong with throat?

Get checked.: If you have a significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see your medical provider & get a strep throat test & culture. Saltwater gargles are helpful. Mix a tsp of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle w this several times/day. You can gargle w aloe vera juice a couple of times per day. A mix of chamomile tea w honey & a small amount of lemon juice is good.

Check for strep.: Strep throat only presents classically in about 30% of adults and about 60% of kids. Even though your throat does not hurt much, since you have a change in appearance of the throat, get checked to be sure you don't have strep. Treatment of strep infections is very important to prevent possible long-term complications, like rheumatic fever, even though that is rarer the older you get.

Throat infection: Throat with yellow and red areas, bumps, blood vessels and white debris in tonsillar crevices sounds like a throat infection, also known as pharyngitis. Pharyngitis can be viral (more common), or bacterial. Try gargling with salt water, drinking warm water with honey and lemon. See health care provider for throat swab to see if infection is bacterial and if there is a need for antibiotics.
