Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury
Not all TBI symptoms show up immediately – sometimes brain injury symptoms take days, weeks or months to appear.
Common symptoms of traumatic brain injury can include:
Changes In Taste
Change In Sleep Patterns
Sensitivity To Light Or Noise
Ringing In The Ears
Any time you suffer a blow to the head, you should suspect a brain injury – particularly if it involves an open wound to the head, loss of consciousness, or dilated pupils.
Long-Term Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury
Brain injuries can cause changes in the way your body functions, particularly in the areas of thinking, language, emotion and sensation. In some cases, TBI can cause epilepsy and other brain disorders, as well.
If you suspect you have a brain injury (even something you think is minor), it’s incredibly important to see a doctor immediately. Brain injuries can be life-threatening.
Minor brain injuries often require rest and some type of pain relief. More severe injuries require more intensive treatment, which can include emergency surgery to help minimize additional damage. Surgery can also help remove blood clots, repair skull fractures or relieve pressure.
After a brain injury, you may also need to work with:
- Occupational therapists
- Physical therapists
- Recreational therapists
- Social workers or case managers
- Speech and language pathologists
- TBI nurse-specialists
- Vocational counselors
