Subarachnoid hemorrhage happens when a blood vessel near the brain ruptures, and the area of the skull surrounding the brain fills with blood. A person having a subarachnoid hemorrhage may experience sudden intense headache, neck pain, and/or nausea and vomiting. In severe cases the buildup of pressure outside of the brain may cause loss of consciousness or death.
The most common cause of subarachnoid hemorrhage is cerebral aneurysm. When the aneurysm goes untreated, the walls of the vein become increasingly weakened and eventually ruptures.
