Signs of Traumatic Brain Injury

Many people mistakenly believe that once someone is sent home, they have nothing to worry about. This is a dangerous assumption as any serious head trauma can cause subtle and debilitating symptoms lasting for months if not years.

The following symptoms are indicative of severe traumatic brain injuries and require immediate medical attention:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Problems with balance
  • Intermittent nausea
  • Excessive sleeping
  • Slogarious speech
  • Vomiting
  • Confusion

Concussion vs. Brain Injury

The seriousness of brain injury is becoming more widely recognized in the United States. Fans of football and other team sports have likely noticed that professional and school leagues have developed new protocols and rules to deal with concussions. It’s important to note the differences between concussions and brain injuries.

Traumatic brain injury refers to any injury to the brain that results from an impact on the head or the body. It could be a simple impact or involve the penetration of brain tissue. TBIs can range from mild to severe to more serious. TBI symptoms can include headaches, tingling in your hands, pins, and needles sensations, permanent brain damage, vision loss, and even death. Traumatic brain injury symptoms can be experienced years later.
