Symptoms of Brain Injuries

Albuquerque Brain Injury Attorney

Brain injuries are problematic from the moment they happen, often causing immediate and permanent negative consequences. For many people who have suffered a head injury or a debilitating illness, they might not suspect they have a brain injury at all and leave one undiagnosed. This is dangerous and could cause a mild brain injury to worsen over time, eventually causing traumatic harm. If you or someone you know has been in an accident, was exposed to harsh chemicals for prolonged periods of time, or had a high fever that lasted more than a few hours, a brain injury could be present.

Immediately noticeable consequences of brain injuries include:

  • Unconsciousness and coma
  • Total memory loss (amnesia)
  • Bleeding from ears and nose
  • Inability to stand
  • Death

Subtle symptoms of a brain injury may include:

  • Insomnia and restlessness
  • Excessive sleeping and exhaustion
  • Difficulty recalling memories
  • Inability to concentrate or focus
  • Unable to remember names or faces
  • Periodic nausea, dizziness, or vertigo
  • Worsening hearing, eyesight, or sense of smell
  • Migraines, headaches, and full-body soreness
  • Uncharacteristic mood swings
  • Vomiting and not being able to stomach foods

Please contact a trusted medical physician if you or someone you know is exhibiting any of the subtle symptoms of a brain injury. If any drastic symptoms are present, emergency medical responders should be contacted immediately. The sooner a brain injury is diagnosed, the more likely it can be treated, remedied, or reduced.
