Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms
Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries are frequently a consequence of accident. A person involved in a significant car crash can suffer a brain injury as easily as a NFL Football player or a Prize Fighting Boxing Champion. Recent events in the media, especially related to football player injuries, have brought this serious issue to the forefront. A great deal of information is now available regarding the entire spectrum of brain injuries and the symptoms of someone suffering with traumatic brain injury are not always easily identified.
Effects of severe traumatic brain Injuries in an individual are easily identified and usually quite obvious. But what about someone who is suffering from a mild traumatic brain injury? Mild traumatic brain injuries can cause temporary brain cell dysfunction. These events are often called concussions.
A head injury can have different effects depending on the affected brain area. The Physical symptoms of Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries can include:
- After the trauma, a temporary loss of consciousness
- After the trauma, a temporary feeling of confusion or disorientation
- Dizziness or loss of balance
- Fatigue or drowsiness
- Nausea or vomiting
- Difficulty sleeping
- Excessive Sleeping / more than usual
- Blurred vision or ringing in the ears
- Loss of smell
The warning signs of brain damage are not always immediately evident. In some cases, memory loss, impaired functioning and other problems may only appear after the passage of time. The effects can be temporary or may be long-lasting. They can include changes in mood, often without warning. An individual may suffer from memory or concentration problems. Often, people with traumatic brain injuries report increased levels of depression, anxiety and other psychological effects.
The good news is that there are many cutting edge developments in the areas of diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain injuries. Multifaceted approaches using a combination MRI, PET scans, medication, and neuropsychological evaluation/treatment, and physical/vocational rehabilitation are effective in reducing long-lasting effects. If you or a loved one has been negligently injured and you believe they are suffering from a traumatic brain injury call the brain injury attorneys at LaBar & Adams, P.A. in Orlando for a consultation.
