Internal bleeding refers to the bleeding within tissues, organs, or cavities of the body including the head and the abdomen.
Internal bleeding may also be seen in the eyes, lining tissues of the heart, muscles and joints.
This condition is one of the serious consequences of physical injury. This type of bleeding is difficult to identify and may not be evident for many hours since the start.
Symptoms of this condition begin when there is significant loss of blood or if the clots formed within are large enough to press against the surrounding tissues.
