Could an iPad falling 2 ft onto the top of your head cause a slow brain bleed? Happened last week. Diagnosed w vertigo today. Didn't know if related

Yes.: Head trauma can produce a slow bleed, but symptoms are progressive and unlikely to consist of vertigo alone. Vertigo is not a diagnosis. It is a symptom which may represent any one of a number of underlying problems ( problems in the inner ear, vestibular nerve or in brain itself.). Best to check with your doc so that you understand the cause and specific treatment of your vertigo. ...Read more

My dad passed out hitting his head on tile floor couple of weeks ago. Er CT was neg. Mri this week showed 'nodule on brain'. Could it be a slow bleed?

My dad passed out hitting his head on tile floor couple of weeks ago. Er CT was neg. Mri this week showed 'nodule on brain'. Could it be a slow bleed?

Small contusion?: It's very difficult to say what this "nodule" is without seeing images, but it is possible this may represent a tiny brain contusion, which was better detected on the mri. Slow bleeds typically occur in the subdural space and assume a more lentiform shape, not nodular, so given the limited information i would say it is unlikely to represent slow, ongoing bleed. ...Read more

I had a brain bleed but no anerysum or abnormalities found , so why did I have a bleed ? .

Depends on location: The location of the bleed may give you some hints as to the possible cause. Intracerebral bleeds tend to come from small weakening in the vessels inside the brain. Subarachnoid bleeds tend to come from aneurysms. Bleeds associated with a tangle of vessels may come from an arteriovenous malformation. There are also cavernous malformations which are sinusoidal dilations of vessels that can bleed. ...Read more
