Bursted vein in the foot causing pain and bruising. Can this happen in brain?

Vein in my foot burst for no reason. I was walking very short distance and suddenly felt a very sharp pinching sensetion then i actualy watched my vein buldge up, the pain got more intense and then the vein collapsed i guess. Very shortly after bruising on that spot appeared. I had something similar in my hand but it was a very tiny vein but this one on my foot was a large one. Shouls I be worry? Can that happen in my brain?

Helo there!
Veins never burst for no reason. there always is a reason. you just dont see it.
Have a full blood count with platelets, pt aptt INR and clotting factors study. also do a doppler duplex ultrasound of lower extremety to rule out any vasulopathy. and to brain bursting of vessels occur but that is most of the time arteries due to hypertensions, atherosclerosises, aneurysms, traumas etc.
so stop worrying and have your self checked. i am sure it would be nothing
