Signs & Symptoms of a Brain Injury
The signs of a traumatic brain injury can take weeks or even months to appear after the accident. Other symptoms are immediate. If you were hurt in an accident or hit your head, even if you do not show immediate signs of distress, you should receive emergency medical attention. Head injuries are very serious and can be life-threatening, but the symptoms are not always evident right away.
A brain injury may affect a patient in numerous ways, including:
- Behaviorally / emotionally, with changes in mood, patience, irritability, irrational anger, inability to focus, repetitive behavior, or loss of constraint
- Cognitively, with affects such as memory loss, confusion, inability to pay attention or focus, concentration problems, and amnesia
- Physically, with issues such as balance disorders, vertigo, dizziness, fainting spells, headaches, bruising, seizures, and exhaustion
- Speech issues such as slurred speech
- Vision issues such as blurred vision or light sensitivity
Treating and diagnosing brain injuries can be complex, and it is important that patients seek treatment early on to identify and properly treat the condition.
