There are many types of vasculitis. Each type involves inflamed blood vessels. However, most types differ in whom they affect and the organs that are involved.
The types of vasculitis often are grouped based on the size of the blood vessels they affect.
Mostly Large Vessel Vasculitis
These types of vasculitis usually, but not always, affect the body’s larger blood vessels.
Behçet's (beh-CHET'S) disease can cause recurrent, painful ulcers (sores) in the mouth, ulcers on the genitals, acne-like skin lesions, and eye inflammation called uveitis (u-ve-I-tis).
The disease occurs most often in people aged 20 to 40. Men are more likely to get it, but it also can affect women. Behçet's disease is more common in people of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Far Eastern descent, although it rarely affects Blacks.
Researchers believe that a gene called the HLA-B51 gene may play a role in Behçet's disease. However, not everyone who has the gene gets the disease.
Cogan's syndrome can occur in people who have a systemic (sis-TEH-mik) vasculitis that affects the large blood vessels, especially the aorta and aortic valve. The aorta is the main artery that carries oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the body.
A systemic vasculitis is a type of vasculitis that affects you in a general or overall way.
Cogan's syndrome can lead to eye inflammation called interstitial keratitis (in-ter-STISH-al ker-ah-TI-tis). The syndrome also can cause hearing changes, including sudden deafness.
more than likely you created a small aneurysm in that part of your brain- the vein didn't burst but rather it swoll up like a weak spot in a ballon- see that doctor-do not do any straining until then.
you certainly can pop vessels from straining so hard...thats why a lot of times women who have just given birth have blotchy patches on their face and neck because of straining so hard...make sure you go to the doctors though, and maybe try calling back and get put on a cancellation list so you could maybe get seen sooner...i almost wonder if maybe you could have some blood on your brain...if your symptoms last for a few more days consistently, go to the ER...it could be something serious
Blood clots are semi-solid masses of blood. Normally, blood flows freely through veins and arteries. Some blood clotting, or coagulation, is necessary and normal. Blood clotting helps stop bleeding if you are cut or injured. However, when too much clotting occurs, it can cause serious complications.
When a blood clot forms, it can be stationary (called a thrombosis) and block blood flow or break loose (called an embolism) and travel to various parts of the body.
