What Are the Symptoms of a Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury can have both short-term and long-term effects, depending on the severity of the injury. Even if a survivor does not exhibit any symptoms immediately after sustaining the injury, it does not necessarily mean that it is not serious. Therefore, you should prioritize a visit to the doctor as soon as possible after sustaining a brain injury.
Below is a list of some of the most common brain injury symptoms:
- Persistent headaches or migraines
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Trouble sleeping or sleeping more than usual
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Loss of balance
- Depression or anxiety
- Severe mood swings
- Slurred speech
- Changes in eating habits
- Difficulty paying attention
- Loss of interest in favorite activities
- Numbness in fingers or toes
- Aggression and combativeness
Common Causes of Brain Injuries
Numerous accidents can result in a brain injury. That said, some are more common than others.
Below are some of the most common causes of brain injuries:
- Falls from great heights, including ladders or stairs
- Traffic collisions, including motorcycles, bikes, cars, trucks, and pedestrians
- Physical assault
- Sports injuries, particularly football, boxing, soccer, hockey, and other extreme or high-impact sports
- Combat injuries, including those that involve explosive blasts
Additionally, children, adults 60 years of age and older, and males in any age group are most at risk for sustaining a brain injury.
Possible Health Complications
It is not uncommon for a brain injury, especially a severe one, to result in health complications and continued pain and discomfort, which is why it is considered a catastrophic injury.
Below are some of the possible health complications a survivor might experience:
- Vertigo, which can result in dizziness
- Blood vessel damage, which can cause a stroke or result in blood clots
- Infections, which can be caused by penetrating wounds or skull fractures that allow bacteria to enter the brain
Brain injuries also increase one’s chances of developing a cognitive degenerative disease in the future.
