I keep coughing and sometimes I'll cough so bad I throw up just a little bit. Can this cause brain bleed? Also gives me head aches. Think it's just cold or allergies always tickle in my throat

If you are having any other neuro signs, get checked out, but otherwise it does not sound like an active bleed. ...Read more
