No. A subarachnoid hemorrhage is bleeding in the space between your brain and the surrounding membrane (subarachnoid space). Bleeding usually results from the rupture of an abnormal bulge in a blood vessel (aneurysm) in your brain. Sometimes bleeding is caused by trauma, an abnormal tangle of blood vessels in your brain (arteriovenous malformation), or other blood vessel or health problems. The primary symptom is a sudden, severe headache. Your symptoms do not seem to be caused by subarachnoid hemorrhage. You are suggested to see a neurologist first to confirm the cause.
Generally, a small amount of aspirin, such as 100mg / day, is a safe dose and will not cause subarachnoid hemorrhage. Vitamin supplements also do not cause subarachnoid hemorrhage. Subarachnoid hemorrhage is usually caused by rupture of aneurysm.
