For a traumatic brain injury, the biggest and most obvious symptom is an event where the head is struck, hit, smacked, or otherwise injured in an isolated event. Not every head injury is serious, but the other physical signs to look for are dilated pupils, dizziness, fatigue, vomiting, seizures, or a loss of consciousness or dazed feeling.
After a brain injury, an individual might have blurred vision, ringing in the ears, or sensitivity to light. It’s also possible to experience memory loss or mood swings after a traumatic brain injury. It may appear that a person has suffered a loss of cognitive, sensory, or motor skills.
Every brain injury is different and sometimes these symptoms will persist long after treatment and rehabilitation of the injury. In other cases, they are temporary symptoms that can be corrected with time and treatment. Injured individuals should seek medical treatment after a head injury if they are a bit off or feel strange.
