Why You Need to Take Brain Injuries Seriously

Why You Need to Take Brain Injuries Seriously

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
  • Death

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.
