Customer Question

About 8 years ago i had a cycling accident, and a concision. about 3 weeks ago a bruise showed up in the area were i got hit and had some pain there, just above my left eye, just above my left eye, the bruise went away, but then I had some pain on the left side of my head, just above where the bruise was. The pain has stopped, and now is on my right side of my head just above my right ear. But now the pain is starting to go away. Do i have a blood clot?

This is Dr. David

these symptoms don't sound like a blood clot

you could be having temporal arteritis inflammation of blood vessels in your temple area.

the bruise could have been from a broken blood vessel from high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, aging, high cholesterol, diabetes, weakness of your blood vessels.

I don't think your cycling accident 8 years ago would be causing issues now.

do you have a doctor you can talk to about broken blood vessels?

are you on aspirin or coumadin or any other blood thinners?
