Brain Injuries Can Seriously Impact Your Life

There are more than 5.3 million people in the US living with disabilities caused by brain injuries. Anytime a person receives a serious blow to the head, they are at risk of sustaining a traumatic brain injury. Some of the main causes of brain injuries include:

  • Vehicle accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Sports incidents
  • Firearm incidents
  • Falls and falling objects
  • Workplace accidents
  • Medical malpractice

We want to point out that concussions are considered mild brain injuries. They are most common in kids and teens who play sports. It is vital that coaches and staff ensure kids are properly evaluated and treated after any suspected head injury.

What are the Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury?

When we turn to data and studies available from the Mayo Clinic, we can see that there are various types of brain injuries that can occur. Typically, these can be broken down into mild, moderate, and severe brain injuries. It is important for any person who has sustained a blow to the head to be aware that the signs and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may not be immediately apparent when the incident occurs. It is crucial to seek medical care as soon as possible so a health care professional can conduct an evaluation to determine whether or not a brain injury has occurred. Here we want to look at some of the most common signs and symptoms associated with each level of brain injury.

Mild Brain Injury Symptoms

Mild traumatic brain injuries do not usually have long-lasting symptoms, and in many cases, these are concussions. However, these injuries are considered cumulative, meaning the damage can get worse if a person sustains a subsequent brain injury before the first one has a chance to heal. Some of the most common physical symptoms of mild traumatic brain injuries include the following:

  • Loss of consciousness for a few seconds to a few minutes
  • A state of disorientation or confusion
  • Headache
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Speech problems
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Sleeping more than normal
  • Dizziness or loss of balance
  • Fatigue or drowsiness

Additionally, a mild traumatic brain injury could cause some memory or concentration problems, mood changes, and feelings of depression or anxiousness.

Moderate to Severe Brain Injury Symptoms

Moderate to severe brain injuries can include any of the signs and symptoms that we mentioned above for moderate brain injuries. However, there may also be other symptoms that appear within the hours or days after the head injury occurs that could indicate more severe issues. Some of the physical symptoms of a moderate to severe brain injury include the following

  • Extended loss of consciousness for minutes or hours
  • Persistent headaches or a headache that worsens over time
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • One or both pupils dilated
  • Repeated nausea and vomiting
  • Clear fluid draining from the ears or nose
  • Inability to awaken the victim
  • Loss of coordination
  • Weakness or numbness in the fingers and toes

Additionally, there may be various cognitive or mental symptoms associated with moderate to severe brain injuries. This can include profound confusion, slurred speech, combativeness or agitation, or even a coma.

Children’s Brain Injury Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of brain injuries in young children and infants may not be as easily noticeable. Children are often unable to communicate any sensory issues or pain they may be experiencing. You may observe the following signs or symptoms in a child who has sustained a traumatic brain injury:

  • Changes in eating or nursing habits
  • Persistent crying and inability to be consoled
  • Changes in sleep habits
  • Changes in attention habits
  • Unusual irritability
  • Seizures
  • Drowsiness
  • Depression-type moods
  • Loss of interest in favorite activities or toys

It is crucial for parents and guardians to seek medical care if they suspect that their child has sustained a brain injury in any way. Delaying medical care could lead to permanent injuries or death.
