Can Subdural Hematoma lead to brain disabilites?


Can Subdural Hematoma possibly make someone mentally ill?
Like kill some of their brain cells or something so that the person is disabled in the sense of he is mentally ill?

And if so, do you HAVE to be hit in the head, or can even being hit in the arm or something like that cause Subdural Hematoma?
----------

A subdural haematoma is a bleed in the brain from veins. It can be acute and sudden onset or chronic, taking days or weeks for symptoms to present. It may occur from head trauma or spontaneously in some people, being more common in the elderly and in alcoholics. It would not result in a person being mentally ill as this is a term reserved for psychiatric conditions generally, but they could have a degree of brain damage due to raised intracranial pressure if there was enough blood loss. Raised ICP can also often be fatal if not treated rapidly.  (+ info)

Has anyone had a subdural hematoma from an auto accident that did not need surgery?


I had a left frontal subdural hematoma, but it resolved on it's own....I did lose my sense of smell from it....has anyone had a subdural or subarachnoid bleed that resolved on it's own? And as a result, did you have any remaining symptoms? Thank you...
MSTESS......that is exactly the same injury I had, a motor vehicle accident with rollover and ejection!
----------

My daughter had a serious head injury about 3 1/2 years ago. She was ejected from a car when it rolled. She had severe fractures to her skull. A depressed skull fracture and a basilar skull fracture. She was deaf in one ear for a few weeks from a CSF leak. Like you, she had a bleed that resolved on it's own. She didn't lose her sense of smell, but it messed up the way things taste. She says things just taste different now. The only other thing we notice is her memory is a little sketchy.

That is her only problem, as far as her head. She still has problems with her neck. (She broke it in 2 places) She still gets alot of headaches, but that is probably her neck. She's still having problems with her leg. Still more surgery to come.

Edit.......you two are very lucky you didn't get killed! Always wear your seatbelt! lol

On a sad note. My daughters friend who was also ejected, and had worse injuries from my daughter has died. Waiting for autopsy results to see if the past head injury was the cause. Scares the sh*t out of me. Apparentley, you're not out of the woods until 5-7 years have past.  (+ info)

Can you give yourself a epidural hematoma or subdural hematoma?


I have OCD/ADD and and after hearing about Nastasha Richardson I am a little scared about it. I do jerk and shake my head cuz of my OCD/ADD alot and give myself a headache. Let me know!
----------

Hematomas require that blood vessels be ruptured. A severe blow to the head can cause this to happen.

The brain has a number of protective mechanisms that prevent cranial blood vessels from being damaged. Your brain is surrounded by a liquid cushion of fluid and is held in place by strong tissues to prevent excessive movement.

Even the strongest shake by your own muscles are far, far below the amount of force required to rupture any blood vessels in your brain. A very strong blow from an outside source such as a baseball bat or crashing into something while skiing is required to produce the kind of damage necessary for a hematoma in your head. You are perfectly safe.  (+ info)

Why can't a lumbar puncture be used in someone who has a subdural haematoma?


Or why cant it be used for someone with increased intra cranial pressure in general? Please could you explain what pressure changes occur as textbooks are not clear on this. Thanks.
----------

Well, it can be used as a therapy for increased ICP if the cause of the ICP is known and it is not due to lesions or bleeding. A subdural hematoma is a rare complication of a spinal tap.  (+ info)

subdural hematoma possible after head injury one year later?


Hello
Anyone know if you can have a subdural hematoma for years and not know?? I fell and hit my head on ice really hard about a year ago and started thinking that since i get headaches all the time.
----------

It is I would imagine within the realm of possibility. However, after all this time I would tend to think it is not likely. None the less, since you are concerned enough to ask te question here, I would suggest you see your health care provider. If nothing else for peace of mind. Was the initial injury severe enough for you to seek medical care at that time? If so take a copy of those records with you. Either way, give the provider all the information you can. Even if it seems irrelevant. let the provider make that decision.
I hope this has helped, good luck and I hope you feel better.  (+ info)
