Is it possible to bust blood vessels in your head from getting very upset. My friend got very mad and sharp pains started shooting through her head and afterwards we noticed several blood vessels constricted above her right temple. This was 8 days ago, and they are still very large and since the first occurence she has been experiencing very bad headaches accompanied with nausea and sensitivity to light. Should she have this checked out? It has been 8 days and the headaches seem to getting worse.
The very fact of getting really mad could be the symptom of a series of problems. Migraines themselves cause irritability and mood swings. Nausea and light sensitivity are very common symptoms of migraines. A number of things may be causing this & the fact that 8 days later she is still suffering is more than justifiable reason to have it looked at. Migraines are caused by constricting blood vessels, more often the vessels can't be seen as they are not surface. SHE SHOULD SEE A DOCTOR.
