Brain injury is commonly diagnosed on the scene of an accident. Initial symptoms such as a loss of consciousness, clear fluids draining from the ears or nose, uneven pupil dilation, and severe confusion are clear indications of brain injury, typically prompting immediate medical intervention. But not all brain injury symptoms are immediately apparent and, when not diagnosed and treated promptly, these symptoms can have a profound impact on every aspect of a victim’s life.
Delayed Symptoms of Brain Injury
Delayed symptoms of brain injury may include:
- Chronic headaches
- Memory and concentration problems
- Cognitive disruptions
- Mood swings
- Depression or anxiety
- Excessive anger or aggression
- Inappropriate emotional responses
These symptoms may take months or even years to manifest, making it important to seek medical assistance after any accident in which head trauma occurs. Prompt detection allows for swift treatment, which can often help prevent serious and irreversible damage from occurring.
