Our blood travels around our body, under pressure from the heart, in tubes. These tubes are known as blood vessels and they traverse the entire body, helping to keep all parts of the body well nourished. The walls of these tubes are quite thin, though, and they are relatively easy to break open.
If an injury occurs to the blood vessels then blood may be allowed to spill out. If this occurs where there is a tear in the surface of the skin then the blood will flow out of the body. When it is deeper, however, then the blood will leak from the blood vessels but remain in the body.
This is known as an internal hemorrhage, also called internal bleeding. This article looks at 10 symptoms of internal bleeding.
Symptom #1: Tingling
Internal bleeding in the head can affect our nerves by placing pressure on them. This can, in turn, affect their ability to send and receive messages around the body. This can have a profound effect on our ability to touch and feel what is around us while it can also lead to some unusual sensations.
Patients with internal bleeding in the head are likely to experience a tingling sensation, especially in their hands and feet. While conditions like pins and needles are fairly common, they should pass before long. If the symptom does not pass then it is a sign that you should see a doctor.
