Understanding TBI: Signs and Symptoms

Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is the name given to serious injuries affecting the head and / or brain. Across the world, traumatic brain injury continues to be one of the leading causes of death and disability in people of all ages.

As with any type of brain injury, recognizing a problem quickly is incredibly important, as the longer a brain injury goes untreated the more likely it is that it will continue to inflict damage. Because of this, it is important to be aware of some of the most common signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injury so that you can be ready to take action the minute a problem appears.

The Tell-Tale Signs

There are a wide variety of potential symptoms related to traumatic brain injury, and all of these can vary in their intensity depending upon the severity of the accident that caused the injury in the first place.

Regardless of how a symptom manifests itself, you should always go to the doctor if you have suffered from a head injury and are experiencing any of the following:

  • A persistent headache
  • Nausea and / or vomiting
  • Seizures or convulsions
  • Problems sleeping or difficulties waking up
  • Problems with coordination or motor-skills
  • Slurred speech
  • Memory loss
  • Weakness or tingling in the extremities
  • Dilation of the pupils (or one pupil)

If you experience one or more of the above symptoms, you very well may have traumatic brain injury. As such, you need to seek medical treatment as quickly as possible to prevent a worsening of your condition.
