Just yesterday I had a "bleeder" in my left eye. I get these quite a bit - the white part of my eye is blood red. I also get them in my fingers and upper arms. I can be sitting doing nothing and all of a sudden a blood vessel will pop in my arm. Immediately after I will get a black and blue mark. This is frightening to me... Is this a cause of a stroke?? I am a 57 year old, non-exercising female and other than that I am in pretty good health. Should this be cause for alarm? I have spoken to other people and it seems pretty common - but no one seems to know much about it. Thanks for any information you can give me.
Taking daily 500 - 1000 mg Vitamic C helped my problem with ruptured blood vessels in my eyes. I had this problem for a few years and they could not find out what caused it. The vitamin C did the trick.
