What Is a Brain Injury? What Are Common Brain Injury Symptoms?
A brain injury describes damage to part of the brain that is severe enough to give the victim noticeable symptoms. Some brain injuries cause acute, or short-term symptoms, while others cause long-term or permanent (chronic) symptoms. The effects of a brain damage can depend on the type of injury, part of the brain injured, age of the patient and many other factors.
Common effects include:
- Persistent headache
- Blurred vision
- Slurred speech
- Dizziness or vertigo
- Memory problems
- Cognitive trouble
- Fatigue or problems sleeping
- Trouble communicating
- Decreased coordination
- Mood or behavior changes
- Depression or anxiety
- Loss of consciousness
A severe and traumatic brain injury, such as a penetrating injury or major concussion, could cause swelling or bleeding in the brain. This could lead to permanent brain cell damage and lasting symptoms, such as difficulty communicating, eating or problem-solving. Someone with a permanent injury may experience lifelong motor function challenges as well.
