hi i was wondering does anyone know someone who had a brain hemorrhage as young as 17? There was no trama it just happened. How can a person suddenly have a bleed in his brain? I wonder how often this happens to someone as young as 17, and what are the odds or chances of this happening again to him... any doctors out there? any info or shared experences would be great. thanks

one more thing his hemorrhage was called an intracranial hemorrhage if youd like to see more i have a page on carepages.com under justinsfight theres pictures and the story. also he is doing great he graduated 2 months after through home bound what lingers is his right side vision is still not there, and he has a hard time remembering some of the the words he wants to say. but im so lucky to have him!!!

Hi there. I have no idea what an intra cranial hemorrhage is but i think that the word cranial would refer to his head, because the 12 nerves that supply the head and neck are called the cranial nerves. Didn't the doctors give you any reasons for why this kind of hemorrhage may happen? Does he have any other health issues that may have caused it? I wish him the best possible health for the future.

The doctors said they didn't know why this happened, He was perfectly healthy before. The hemorrhage was between the brain and skull so they were able to get to it fast. Thanks. Liz

A very good friend of mine, found hammoerage in her head .. she was perfectly fine earlier. However, she did felt dizziness and headches. Actually, she went to get her headache checked when this happened. This happened when she was 26 .. she is 27 now. Doctors gave her some anticoagulantts and asked her to change her diest a bit. They did not gave her a reason to why this happened. Later, it turned out, their diagnose was wrong .. she did not had hemmorahge, as they thought. It was just some tiny blood clots in front left side. She continued with her medication and diest and is perfectly fine now (she did lost some weight) .. Thats the closest thing i know about hemmorahges .. Im sorry to hear about your son, tell him someone from half a globe apart pats him on the head (not realizing, im just 1 year older than him) ... He will be fine :). Take care.
