What Are The Long-Term Effects Of Traumatic Brain Injury?
The long-term effects of a TBI can differ from one person to the next, depending on the severity of that injury. In many situations, they can change the way your body functions, such as in sensation, thinking, emotion, and language. In more severe cases, some people with TBI also develop brain disorders such as epilepsy.
If you have been involved in an accident and suspect a brain injury or notice changes in yourself or others, seek help from a doctor. Brain injuries can be life-threatening.
After suffering from a minor TBI, many sufferers require pain relief and rest. On the extreme end of the scale, emergency surgery to remove clots, minimize further damage, relieve pressure, and repair fractures may also be required.

Common Symptoms Of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
The brain is a complex organ, meaning not everyone will experience the same TBI symptoms. Further complicating the matter is that symptoms of TBI are not always present right away. Instead, they can present in the days, weeks, or even months after the accident has occurred.
The symptoms can also vary between adults and children and depending on the severity of the brain injury. Medical professionals separate TBI into two categories: mild to moderate/severe. All TBI symptoms can also be broken down into physical, sensory, and cognitive/mental symptoms.
Some of the more common ones within these categories include:
- Blurry vision
