Hemorrhagic Stroke

In a hemorrhagic stroke, a weakened artery ruptures and causes bleeding within the brain or in the tissue surrounding the brain. This leads to increased pressure and swelling in the brain. The area of the brain affected is deprived of oxygen rich blood.

“Sacco et.al (2013), found the risk of hemorrhagic stroke increased by 50% in subjects with any migraine compared with nonmigraineurs.”1
