Can you burst a blood vessel in your brain if you over exert

Resolved Question:

Can you burst a blood vessel in your brain if you over exert in the bathroom

Yes, it may happen unfortunately.

But only if you already have a predisoposition to such hemorrhage, either through atherosclerosis (vessels getting hardened and stiff due to age or high cholesterol), angiomas (a balloon like swelling in the vessels), etc.

Bursting of vessels can occur in constipation during exertion, severe cough, etc.

Any signs i should watch out for. Do you think i might have? Im 23 male, no history of any of the above
Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 3 years ago.
Well in that case, no.

There is no way you can get this at 23 years old.

Dont worry about this it wont happen to you.

Signs will be a sudden intense headache with vomiting and possibly drowsiness, weakness of some part of the body, loss of consciousness.

Signs are unmistakable, they are very severe and acute and you dont
have to worry about a burst vessel happening without your knowing it.


Hope that satisfies your query. If so, please choose a positive rating.

If you have any other queries, do ask. Wish you good health and a quick recovery. Bonus is always welcome!

Thank you.
