Hit Head Cause Brain Bleed
Depends on cause: Brain bleeding can be caused by a variety of conditions. Some are sudden. Such as those from aneurysms, avms or hemorrhagic strokes, and produce severe headaches. Chronic bleeding into a subdural hematoma can cause constant pain. After a bleed, the breakdown products of blood can cause a chemical irritation and produce headaches chronically. Brain bleeding requires urgent attention. ...Read more

No: Traumatic brain injury is defined as damage to the brain resulting from an external mechanical force, such as rapid acceleration or deceleration, impact, blast waves, or penetration by a projectile.

Not by definition: The common term "floater" refers to defects in the gelatinous substance contained in the eye ; occurs due to aging . Floaters have not been described as secondary to head injury. This is not to say that something could not be forcefully detached or traumatized inside the eye after a head injury giving a visual perception of a problem but it wouldn't be called a "floater.". ...Read more
See discussion: Hitting your head won't cause a stroke in the way we generally refer to a stroke-a blockage of a blood vessel in your brain. However hitting your head hard can do some other things that aren't good. A more likely effect would be a concussion, which can have neurological effects on you.

Regardless the nfl and nhl are both paying a lot of attention these days. ...Read more

Yes, it can: Head trauma can cause a host of problems both immediately and long-term. Some injuries are more obvious -- like skull fractures, gunshot wounds, etc. Others, like closed head injuries or concussions, are less obvious but suffering is still present. One needs a good neurologist and neuropsychiatrist to help with such situations. Medications can be tricky, and behavioral management's needed too. ...Read more
Usually the reverse: A person with an expanding hemorrhage deep in the brain will first feel nauseated, then throw up, then maybe die of the hemorrhage. The family may think the person's hemorrhage was caused by throwing up. Occasionally a berry aneurysm ruptures during delivery of a baby, but the straining of common vomiting is much less and would be unlikely to rupture anything. If you have a loss, i'm sorry. ...Read more
