Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) are a significant public health concern in California!

Traumatic Brain Injuries occur when there is a sudden jolt or blow to the head that disrupts the normal functioning of the brain. These injuries can range from mild concussions to severe brain damage and can have long-lasting or even permanent effects on an individual’s physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being.

 

Brain injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and acquired brain injuries (ABIs), can result from various causes. These injuries can vary in severity, from mild concussions to severe and life-altering damage.

What are some common symptoms of traumatic brain injuries?

The symptoms of traumatic brain injury (TBI) can vary widely depending on the severity of the injury and the specific areas of the brain affected. TBI symptoms can be classified into two main categories: physical and cognitive/psychological. It’s essential to recognize these symptoms, as some TBIs may not be immediately apparent and could worsen over time.

What are some common physical symptoms to experiencing a traumatic brain injury?

Here is a list of some common physical symptoms of traumatic brain injuries:

 

  1. Headache: Persistent or severe headaches are a common symptom following a TBI.
  2. Nausea and Vomiting: TBI can cause feelings of nausea and may lead to vomiting.
  3. Dizziness and Balance Problems: TBI can affect the vestibular system, leading to balance issues and a sense of unsteadiness.
  4. Sensory Problems: Changes in sensory perceptions, such as blurred vision, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), sensitivity to light and noise, or a bad taste in the mouth.
  5. Fatigue and Sleep Disturbances: Feeling tired or having difficulty sleeping more than usual.
  6. Loss of Consciousness: In severe cases, loss of consciousness may occur, ranging from a few seconds to minutes or longer.
  7. Seizures: Some individuals may experience seizures following a TBI.

Here is a list of some common cognitive & psychological symptoms of traumatic brain injuries:

  2. Confusion and Disorientation: Feeling disoriented, having difficulty concentrating, or feeling mentally foggy.
  3. Mood Swings: Emotional changes such as irritability, agitation, anxiety, or depression.

Early diagnosis and treatment can significantly impact recovery and improve outcomes for individuals with traumatic brain injuries.
