Common Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Common Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Recently, we wrote a blog post cataloging the different types of traumatic brain injuries (TBI). But, how do you detect a brain injury? The answer can be complicated, as many brain injuries have subtle or even imperceptible symptoms. Yet, there are still ways to detect a TBI. Our Albuquerque brain injury attorney lays out some of the best ways you can identify, and therefore get treatment for, a brain injury.

Brain Injuries—What to Look For

Brain injuries tend to come in one of three categories—mild, moderate, and severe. They may have similar symptoms, but of varying degrees of intensity. Typically, the more severe the symptoms, the more severe the injury.

Common symptoms of TBI can include any of the following:

  • Unconsciousness—brief or extended (such as a coma)
  • Excessive sleeping and exhaustion
  • Insomnia and/or restlessness
  • Bleeding or clear fluid draining from ears and nose
  • Declining sense of hearing, sight, or smell
  • Difficulty recalling memories
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Full-body soreness
  • Inability to concentrate or focus
  • Inability to remember names or faces
  • Migraines and/or headaches
  • Partial or total memory loss (amnesia)
  • Uncharacteristic mood swings
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

The Best Method of Detecting a Brain Injury

There is one method that will almost guarantee brain injury detections—a visit to the doctor. Doctors are trained to look for and diagnose such injuries, and they possess the equipment to make the detection of invisible ailments possible.

If you have been in an accident that may have inflicted trauma on your brain, especially a slip and fall or car accident, seek medical attention. Even if you initially feel fine, brain injuries can manifest days, weeks, or months later. Getting immediate medical attention is your best line of defense against future injury.

If you have been in a car, slip and fall, or other accident that caused a brain injury and you need help paying for your medical bills and other expenses, contact us today. Our Albuquerque brain injury attorney Michael J. Doyle is dedicated to helping accident victims get back on their feet.
