 What’s Blowing One’s Nose Got to Do With Stroke?

A recent insight has revealed that common activities like having coffee, blowing one's nose and also having sex can cause blood vessels to burst in the brain, increasing the risk of stroke.

Even letting off steam or being in a state of shock can cause blood pressure to rise temporarily, elevating the risk of stroke especially among those who have aneurysms. We may not consider these daily activities so risky, but some of these can cause blood vessels in the brain to rupture.

Dr Sharlin Ahmed, Research Liaison Officer at The Stroke Association said: "The rupture of a brain aneurysm is incredibly dangerous. It is often sudden, without warning and it can cause bleeding in the brain, known as a haemorrhagic stroke. A sudden surge in high blood pressure can increase the likelihood of an aneurysm rupturing. It's very difficult to determine whether the triggers identified in this study are definitely related to the onset of a stroke as they could simply be put down to coincidence."
