In brief: Cerebellar hemorrhag

Cerebellar hemorrhage is a scary event.
It presents with acute, severe headache, dizziness, possibly vertigo, and inability to walk normally. The bleeding occurs in the hind-part of the brain, the cerebellum, which controls coordination. In almost 98% of cases, there is no need for surgery to evacuate a small clot, and you just wait for the blood to be reabsorbed and control risk factors like bp.
