How does bleeding on the brain happen after a fall?

Multiple ways: During the fall, if the brain is thrust against the boney skull, it can be injured producing a small hemorrhage. A second mechanism, the bridging veins between the dura and the brain are torn producing a subdural hematoma. With lateral skull fracture, the middle meningeal artery can be torn producing an epidural hematoma. With violent falls, traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhages due to arterial tears. ...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
