When it comes to head trauma, one can never be too careful. Traumatic brain injuries require immediate medical attention and can result in permanent brain damage or even death if they are not properly treated as quickly as possible. Understanding the signs of a traumatic brain injury can help you identify this particular condition. When in doubt, seek medical care anyway.
The following are potential symptoms of a traumatic brain injury:
- Mood swings
- Difficulty concentrating
- Nausea, dizziness, and vomiting
- Difficulty communicating
- Memory loss
- Clumsiness, lack of hand-eye coordination, or balance issues
- Vision problems
- Loss of consciousness
If someone you love has been involved in an accident and is displaying any of these symptoms, seek medical care right away. Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by a blow to the head, a fall, or in the event of a sudden impact, such as a car accident. The brain is the control center of the body, and if it is damaged, the results can be harmful and far-reaching.
