What Are the Symptoms of Brain Damage?
No two brain injuries are alike because we, as individuals, may react differently
to the same injury. Some symptoms may surface in the immediate aftermath
of an accident, though it is also not uncommon for symptoms to take days,
weeks, and even months to surface. That was why a person should always
seek medical treatment after a brain injury.
Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury can be classified as either mild or severe brain
damage. A mild traumatic brain injury occurs if the loss of consciousness,
confusion, or disorientation is less than 30 minutes.
Take a look at the effects of mild traumatic brain injury:
- Difficulty Thinking
- Memory Problems
- Problems Focusing
- Emotional Swings
Even “mild” traumatic brain injuries can devastate a family,
especially if the injured individual is unable to work or perform their
normal duties to the extent that they did before the injury.
Severe Traumatic Brain Injury
Severe traumatic brain injury occurs if the loss of consciousness lasts
more than 30 minutes and if the memory loss subsequent to the injury lasts
longer than 24 hours.
The following are some of the effects of severe traumatic brain injury:
- Impairment of Cognitive Functions
- Limited Limb Function
- Abnormal Speech
- Loss of Cognitive Abilities
- Emotional Problems
Changes in the way the brain functions require extensive therapy and medical
attention. Whether your injury or your loved one’s injury is mild
or severe, the effects can be damaging financially, emotionally, and physically.
Brain injuries can have potentially long-term and devastating effects on
a person’s life, which is why they should always be treated without delay.
