The Effects of a Brain Injury

Brain injuries can result in both short-term and long-term effects, depending on the severity of it. Although no two brain injuries are exactly alike, there are some common symptoms many victims suffer.

Some of the most common symptoms of a brain injury include:

  • Reduced consciousness
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness or loss of balance
  • Ringing in ears
  • Blurry vision
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Severe mood swings
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
  • Problems speaking or reading

Additionally, some common long-term symptoms include:

  • Memory loss
  • Impaired cognitive function
  • Increased risk of seizure or stroke
  • Loss of sensation in some of the body’s extremities
  • Partial paralysis

Survivors of traumatic brain injuries might also be more susceptible to developing degenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease. Many of the long-term effects survivors experience worsen over time due to the gradual degradation of brain cells or complications caused by new injuries. For example, if you sustained a crack in your skull and bacteria entered the wound, reaching your brain, you would suffer from other complications that go beyond the brain injury itself. Even if the brain injury you sustained appears to be relatively minor, it is still essential to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Brain injuries do not always present immediate symptoms, so the only way to ensure your health is protected is to see a doctor.

Brain Injuries in Children

Children generally experience the same symptoms as adults. However, it is far more difficult for them to recover due to the fact that their brain is still in the developmental stages. Children are also less capable of articulating their symptoms, which can make treatment more challenging.

Some of the symptoms you should be aware of in your children include:

  • Persistent crying
  • Trouble paying attention
  • Changes in eating habits
  • Loss of skill
  • Fatigue
  • Changes in academic performance
  • Vomiting
