What does it mean if the blood vessels in my head are inflamed?

Vasculitis: The cause of most forms of vasculitis ( inflammation of blood vessels) is unknown. However we know the immune system plays a role. The immune system is meant to protect the body, but when it becomes "overactive" due to some unknown trigger it can cause inflammation in the blood vessels. This causes narrowing of the blood vessel, decreased blood supply which can cause damage to surrounding tissues. ...Read more

I accidently burned the front side of my head with straightening iron it hurts really bad did this cause any damage to blood vessels or anything?

Unlikely : The burn you have, even though I'm sure it's quite painful, is likely too superficial to come in contact with any blood vessels on your forehead. You can consider taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for your pain. Also, applying a cool (not icy cold) compress to the area may be helpful. Best wishes. ...Read more

Why do I get sharp pain on the side of my head,feels like a blood vessels popping,also feeling very weak.a After the pain leaves it feels cold at area?

Neuralgia: An irritable superficial scalp nerve may be the cause of this symptom. This is more of a nuisance disorder which usually resolves without any specific treatment. Less likely would be an inflamed temporal artery. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you if this symptom persists. ...Read more

I had a sudden sharp headache on the left side of my head, above my left eye. What is concerning is that my left eye blood vessels bursted. ?

See eye doctor now: Have you had your eye pressure measured? I think you need to see an ophthalmologist immediately to make sure that you don't have glaucoma which can lead to blindness if not promptly treated. An alternate answer would be migraine which is of concern also if it occurs for the 1st time at your age. ...Read more

Why did my daughter have a cut on her head when she was born? It was emergency C-section . Her blood vessels were popped and head was cone shaped.

C/section risk: The OB cuts through the layers of the uterus during the C-section to reveal a balloon like baby container.The distance between the last layer of uterus and the balloon like lining is the width of a thick sheet of paper.The baby & container presses tightly against the wall. Occasionally the knife nicks baby at what ever point they are under the cutting edge. Shallow nicks heal quickly. ...Read more

My straightener was set to 400 degrees and I burned my head on the right side top not on forehead could this cause hemorrhage or damaged blood vessels?

Not really: Thermal burn usually involves the epidermis which does not have any blood vessels. This is a first degree burn with no blisters, but pain, redness. If the burn is deeper 2nd degree it involves the dermis which has small blood vessels causes pain, reddness with the hair intact. Again, no hemorrhage, the small blood vessels leak fluids or get coagulated like the tissue. ...Read more

I had the flu and was puking all night, now ihave popped blood vessels on my skin and my head hurts everytime i cough, will this pain go away?

Yes: If this is in fact influenza you will get better over a period of two weeks or so. Unless you get a secondary bacterial infection you will not benefit from an antibiotic. As long as you are not getting worse after the miserable first five days or so you will continue to gradually improve. If this is influenza it helps to understand why flu shots are recommended. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
