Symptoms of Severe Brain Injury

Symptoms of Severe Brain Injury

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

If you think you have suffered a brain injury, you should seek medical attention right away. Oftentimes, minor brain injuries show no symptoms at all, or may not show symptoms until days later. Even seemingly harmless head injuries should be examined by a doctor.

Immediately after the injury, you can experience any number of symptoms based on the severity of the brain injury. Initial symptoms appearing in the moments, days or weeks following severe brain injury may include:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Seizures
  • Speech problems
  • Memory problems
  • Poor judgment
  • Changes in personality
  • Lack of coordination
  • Chronic headache
  • Nausea and vomiting

Any behavioral, cognitive or physical changes after a head injury may indicate the brain was affected. If you or a loved one has been in an auto accident or other incident, it is important to be alert to any changes.

Because symptoms vary and may not be apparent at all, you must seek medical care after a head injury. Even in a closed head injury, in which the skull is not broken, serious damage may have occurred.
