Internal bleeding is not very different from normal bleeding, but it occurs inside the tissues of the body and organs and the blood does not appear to the eye. Internal bleeding is rarely severe or heavy, that is why it can’t be diagnosed once it happens, as it requires time for the symptoms to appear.
Symptoms of internal bleeding
Symptoms of internal bleeding vary depending on where it occurs, and the following are the most prominent symptoms of different areas of bleeding.
- Although abdominal pain may result from many cases, it can be evidence of an internal bleeding.
- The pain is generally common in the abdomen between the rib cage and the hips.
The appearance of blood in the waste
- When the blood appears in the waste, it can be evidence of bleeding in the digestive system, and the closer the bleeding to the intestine, the more red the blood color will be.
