Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury is often known as the “invisible injury,” because its symptoms are often difficult to detect, even on modern imaging equipment. This often leads to a delayed diagnosis for traumatic brain injury, which may worsen a victim’s prognosis and recovery. Get the facts on the symptoms of traumatic brain injury so you know what to look out for in yourself or a loved one.

Traumatic Brain Injury Warning Signs

The warning signs of a traumatic brain injury may vary depending on the severity of the injury sustained. Traumatic brain injuries range from mild to severe.

Mild traumatic brain injuries may display few symptoms. However, it’s still a good idea to schedule a doctor appointment if you suspect you have received a concussion or other head injury in an accident, so your doctor can let you know how long to rest before returning to work, school, or other activities.

Moderate and severe traumatic brain injuries may display more pronounced symptoms including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Loss of consciousness

  • Convulsions or seizures

  • Slurred speech

  • Weakness or numbness in the limbs

  • Persistent headaches

  • Memory and concentration problems

  • Changes in mood or personality

  • Increased sensitivity to light and sounds

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. The sooner that traumatic brain injury victims get a diagnosis, the more positive their outlook, in most cases.
