An intracranial hemorrhage or a brain bleed is referred to as a brain hemorrhage. In this condition, an artery bursts in the brain, which causes localized bleeding in the surrounding tissues, resulting in a type of stroke. Headache, nausea, vomiting, tingling, numbness, weakness, or paralysis of arms, legs, and face are some of the symptoms of a brain hemorrhage.
