I have taken coumadin for a long time now and have never been told that any blood vessels could burst. It is a medication that thins the blood. That is the only things it does. Like any medication, I am sure there are side effects, however, I dont think that bursting blood vessels is one of them.

Yes, you can have unusual bleeding with coumadin but this is a sign that you need to report to your Dr NOW!! You will probably need an INR drawn to see if your blood is too "thin". Anytime you have signs of unusual bleeding like this it is important to report it right away when you take coumadin. If they test and your INR is too high they may have you change your dose or may even need to give you a little Vitamin K to reverse the effects but first you need to report your symptoms to your prescribing Dr so he can direct you as to what to do! Do NOT wait-do it today as it can be dangerous if your INR is too high-you may start to bleed internally and it can be fatal if it goes on too long.
