Causes and symptoms of traumatic brain injury
Some of the more common causes of head injury include industrial and work accidents, slip and falls, traffic accidents, and injuries suffered during recreation activities. Traumatic brain injury may lead to:
- Vision loss
- Hearing loss
- Personality changes
- Cognitive disabilities
- Loss of life
One of the most disturbing aspects of injuries to the brain is that symptoms are not always visible immediately and can go undetected for weeks, months and even years. Symptoms of traumatic brain injury can include:
- Severe headache
- Extreme confusion
- Skull fracture
- Blurred vision
- Slurred speech
- Stiff neck
- Loss of consciousness
- Extreme drowsiness
- Fluid draining from the nose, ears or mouth
If you or a loved one has had a head injury and exhibits symptoms such as these, please seek medical care immediately. Diagnostic studies such as MRIs and CT scans are helpful in determining the extent and nature of head and brain injuries. So, too, is a Neurological Psychological Evaluation (NPE). Any delay in recognizing a brain injury can be extremely harmful or even fatal. If you or someone you love suspects that a brain injury has indeed taken place, a full neurological examination, performed on a repeated basis, may be needed.
