Brain injuries can have a catastrophic impact on your life, affecting your cognitive, emotional and sensory functioning. While mild brain injuries, such as concussions, often result in a full recovery, more severe brain injuries don’t always carry a good prognosis. Often, victims of a traumatic brain injury require lifelong care and experience drastic alterations in the quality of their life.
Due to the serious consequences associated with these injuries, it’s crucial that you seek medical attention anytime you’ve suffered a blow to the head. In many instances, it can take days or weeks for brain injury symptoms to develop, and receiving prompt treatment can often significantly increase your chances of a full recovery.
What Are the Most Common Warning Signs of a Traumatic Brain Injury?
There are a variety of signs that you may be suffering from a serious brain injury. Some of these symptoms are associated with your cognitive functioning, while others may be manifest in a change to your emotional state or your ability to perceive stimuli. Traumatic brain injury victims typically exhibit a combination of the following symptoms:
- Loss of consciousness
- Frequent nausea or vomiting
- Chronic head pain or intense headaches
- Trouble waking up
- Slurred speech
- Poor balance and coordination
- Frequent mood swings
- Inability to focus or concentrate
- Memory issues
- Lack of motivation
- Blurry vision
- Ringing in the ears
- Changes to your ability to hear, taste or smell
The combination of symptoms you experience will depend on the location and severity of your brain injury. These warning signs should always be taken seriously. If you experience any of the issues above after sustaining a blow to the head, visit a doctor immediately.
