The brain is the most vital part of the human body and it controls everything
that we do. It allows us to enjoy a movie, converse with friends, and
take walks outside. Unfortunately, our brains are also extremely delicate
and even a minor head trauma can lead to severe damage. Due to the complexity
and fragile nature of our nervous system, all brain injuries have the
potential to be extremely serious and must be treated as such.
Brain injuries can be particularly dangerous as symptoms are not always
obvious or apparent. Victims may not be immediately aware of the existence
of a brain injury and can appear, on the surface, to be fine. This can
keep many from seeking needed medical care and an injury which goes untreated
can unexpectedly worsen, leading to permanent damage or, in some cases, death.
The signs of a brain injury can be subtle and if you have experienced a
head trauma of any kind it is critical to see a doctor as soon as possible.
A doctor can properly advise you on the true severity of injuries as well
as needed medical treatments.
Symptoms of a brain injury can include behavior such as:
- Difficulty recalling memories
- Constant fatigue or exhaustion
- Inability to focus
- Nausea, vertigo, or vomiting
- Persistent headaches or migraines
Brain injuries can be caused by external trauma, such as a blow to the
head, or internal conditions such as lack of oxygen to the brain. These
injuries are not uncommon and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) estimates that every year in the United States, more than 275,000
people are hospitalized for a brain injury.
