Hemorrhagic Stroke And Confusion

Hemorrhagic Stroke And Confusion

Confusion is a symptom of hemorrhagic stroke. A hemorrhagic stroke is caused when blood clots are formed in the arteries and the blood vessel bursts. There are several other symptoms of hemorrhagic stroke and some of them are as follows:

  • Severe headaches in a specific spot of the head.
  • Nausea and sometimes followed by vomiting.
  • Stiffness in the neck and arm muscles.
  • A dizzy feeling sometimes accompanied with seizures.
  • Changes in behavior like irritability, confusion.
  • Fainting and unconsciousness.

Hemorrhagic strokes mostly occur when a person is physically active. When a person is very active, the blood flow is more and that may lead to a damage of the blood vessel. Hemorrhagic stroke occurs all of a sudden leaving the person confused and unable to react. Not many people can relate the common symptoms of hemorrhagic strokes to the condition. However, the symptoms start showing up bit by bit. A person who is prone to it should seek immediate help even if the symptoms do not mean much at the end of the day. Preventing a stroke is much better than suffering from it even to a mild extent due to its long term effects. 

People who are highly prone for hemorrhagic strokes are diabetic, obese, alcoholics, chain smokers and who have other heart related conditions. People who suffer from such conditions should watch out for symptoms like:

  • Severe headaches that start in the back of the neck or head.
  • Dizziness or fainting.
  • Tingling feeling in the arms, and legs. Sometimes the limbs can turn numb.
  • Confusion
