Daily Dose with William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
When I was a trauma surgeon in a Florida emergency room, I saw my share of brain hemorrhages.
In most cases, they were caused by car accidents. The moment the patient was wheeled in, you didn’t need to be a doctor to know something was wrong in the head (buckle up, friend — when you’ve seen what I’ve seen, you don’t need a Nanny State rule to force you into wearing your seatbelt).
There was also the occasional aneurysm patient, who had classic stroke symptoms. And every now and then, we’d have someone with a known bleeding disorder.
But right now, at this very moment, millions of Americans are facing the risk of brain hemorrhage, and the reason is none of the above.
It’s not caused by trauma, aneurysms or anemia… but by common medications you might even be taking yourself!
