Traumatic brain injuries are near the top of the list when it comes to catastrophic injuries. Each year, roughly 2.8 million Americans experience a traumatic brain injury in many different situations. These injuries can have lifelong impacts on you and your quality of life. Below, we will work to help you understand the long-term impact of a TBI.
You might experience ongoing headaches and dizziness, as well as issues with balance and coordination. Other physical symptoms include nausea, fatigue, and drowsiness, among others. Unfortunately, a TBI can also lead to speech problems and other developmental problems.
From the onset of the brain injury, you may lose consciousness immediately. Loss of consciousness can last a few minutes or a few hours. A traumatic brain injury can also result in mood changes, behavioral issues, sleep problems, and memory loss.
One of the biggest factors you may notice is sensory problems associated with your TBI. You might experience blurred vision, tinnitus (which is ringing in the ears), and a loss of taste. Your sense of smell may also change drastically.
Because a traumatic brain injury can lead to developmental issues, you might require ongoing medical care and procedures. The use of specialized medical equipment might be a possibility, as well.
