What Are The Symptoms Of A Brain Injury?

By December 11, 2013Brain Injury

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that approximately 1.5 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year and that more than 5 million currently live with disabilities caused by a brain injury. If you’ve developed a brain injury, the effects of your injury could last a lifetime.

The most common symptoms of brain injury include

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Blurry vision
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea or vomiting

More severe cases may also cause

  • Unconsciousness
  • Slurred speech,/li>
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control
  • Loss of coordination

You should also understand that symptoms of brain injury may not manifest immediately. Some signs of brain injury may take days, weeks, or even months to appear. So it’s important to seek medical help following any head trauma, even if you don’t immediately notice anything abnormal.
