Recognizing The Symptoms Of A Traumatic Brain Injury


The term "traumatic brain injury," or TBI for short, conjures images of horrific head wounds and out-of-character behavior that's immediately apparent. However, for many people, the symptoms of a TBI may not manifest for days or even months following an accident. Others may not even trace their symptoms to the incident that caused the TBI, thereby delaying their chances of recovery and possibly making the injury worse.

That's why it's so important to keep an eye out for the symptoms of a TBI whenever someone sustains a bump, blow or jolt to the head or body. Some signs that a person may have suffered a TBI include:

  • Difficulty forming thoughts
  • A feeling of moving slowly
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Difficulty learning new information

Understandably, it can be easy to overlook these problems. However, if a person has suffered some sort of head trauma recently and is experiencing these symptoms, a visit to a doctor may be in order.

Seeking immediate medical attention

Some TBIs, especially those that involve blood clots, require immediate medical intervention. A person should contact a medical professional or an emergency department immediately when experiencing the following danger signs of a TBI:

  • An increasingly worsening headache or a headache that will not go away
  • Weakness or impaired coordination
  • Persistent vomiting or nausea
  • Slurred speech

You should also take action if an accident victim appears drowsy or is unable to follow directions. If the accident victim passes out, 911 should be called.

The good news is it's possible to recover from a TBI. The road to recovery can be long and difficult, but learning to recognize the signs of a concussion or a brain injury can help an accident victim get a head start on feeling better.
