Once damaged, the human brain doesn’t heal itself quite the way torn muscles, bruised skin, or broken bones can. In many instances, the damage suffered from a traumatic brain injury leaves permanent effects behind.
People sustain traumatic brain injuries (TBI) through numerous sorts of incidents. The cause can be a sudden, violent impact with an object or a something actually piercing the skull and damaging the brain tissue. The resulting damage can depend upon the area of the brain sustaining the trauma and the severity of the impact. Some injuries result in loss of consciousness; some don’t. Some TBI symptoms can be mild to moderate in nature, even manageable; others, severe and life-altering.
Mild TBI alone can present with symptoms of headaches, dizziness, confusion, light-headedness, unusual bad tastes in the mouth, blurry vision, and unexplained ringing in the ears. Victims may also feel suddenly fatigued or lethargic, in addition to having disturbed sleep, cognitive difficulties, and sudden personality changes.
Mild or severe TBI can also present with all of the above. However, these more significant injury symptoms may also include:
- Persistent, worsening headaches
- Frequent vomiting and/or nausea
- Sleep from which one cannot seem to awaken at will
- Dilated pupils
- Slurred speech
- Weak or numb extremities
- Impaired coordination
- Regular confusion, agitation, or restlessness
