A traumatic brain injury can have a serious impact on your well-being, which is why it’s important to be able to recognize the signs of a TBI.
A mild TBI is the most common type of a brain injury. This is akin to a light concussion – considering that this type of TBI is not severe, it can sometimes go unnoticed for far too long. Some common symptoms include a headache, fatigue of any kind, memory loss, dizziness, loss of balance, or some type of emotional disturbance that is abnormal for you.
When, on the other hand, it comes to a severe TBI, this is a bit different. Moderate to severe characteristics of a traumatic brain injury is more serious and can vary more widely. Symptoms can include (but are not limited to): serious speech and language issues, cognitive deficits, different physical or emotional changes, differences in social behavior and interaction, and any type of sensory difficulties.
If you notice a change in your physical, mental, or emotional state after an injury, it’s important to take care of this right away. See a doctor at your earliest convenience to ensure that you get the help you need and deserve. TBIs should be treated right away!
