By now, we know that traumatic brain injuries are some of the worst to endure because they have a long-term impact on your life. Symptoms are often dependent on how severe the injury is. Below, we will explain the various symptoms you might experience if you endure a traumatic brain injury.
Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries
A mild traumatic brain injury is the least damaging, but it’s still serious. For instance, a mild TBI can be a concussion or contusion in which your brain moves around inside your skull. The impact is enough to cause slight memory loss and a brief loss of consciousness. You may also experience:
A mild TBI may not be visible on testing results, so it’s vital to document the symptoms.
Moderate Traumatic Brain Injuries
You can sustain a moderate traumatic brain injury when you experience a significant blow to your head or other trauma. A moderate traumatic brain injury can cause you to lose consciousness immediately when the impact occurs. In the days and weeks that follow, symptoms can include:
- Behavior changes
- Cognitive disabilities
- Memory loss
You can see signs of a moderate traumatic brain injury on imaging scans.
Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries
The most severe traumatic brain injuries cause a complete loss of consciousness, such as a coma. Many severe TBIs result in fatalities, but survivors can experience lifelong cognitive, physical, and mental damages. Therapy may help manage the damages, but it is not always possible to completely recover from a severe traumatic brain injury.
