Brain injuries are often caused by incidents where you are likely to experience blunt force trauma to the head. These injuries can be life threatening if not treated quickly, so if you have been involved in an incident you should seek medical care immediately.

What are the Symptoms and Signs of a Brain Injury?

Sometimes the symptoms of a brain injury may take time to show up or may be easily dismissed. Some of the most common signs and symptoms you may experience as the result of a brain injury include:

 

  • Slower cognitive function
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased functioning
  • Changes in behavior
  • Memory loss
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty with speaking

 

Some of these symptoms might be harder to notice than others and often the injured person doesn’t realize they are having symptoms until someone around them mentions the change in their behavior. It can be quite easy to dismiss a headache as dehydration or fatigue as lack of sleep, but in reality these can be signs that you have a brain injury. Depending on the severity of your brain injury, your symptoms may be more severe or obvious. Regardless of the severity of your symptoms, you should be examined by a medical professional after being involved in any kind of accident.
