When someone suffers from brain injury, there are often immediate responses to the injury. Other times, symptoms will occur later. Some symptoms relating to brain injury can be minor, while others are serious and even life-threatening.

There are many symptoms associated with mild traumatic brain injury, or MTBI. Some of these symptoms include the loss of consciousness, loss of memory, and changes in the person's mental state. Changes in mental state may include disorientation, confusion, impaired attention, and others. The truth is that in some MTBI cases, the individual will appear to be fine. However, they may continually suffer from many symptoms. In some cases involving mild traumatic brain injury, the person will have post-concussion syndrome, also known as post-concussive syndrome. Those who have post-concussive syndrome may suffer from physical, mental, or emotional symptoms.

Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can cause many problems and has several serious symptoms. Those who suffer from traumatic brain injury may be affected mentally, physically, and even psychologically.

There are many mental symptoms associated with traumatic brain injury. These include both short-term and long-term memory loss, difficulty communicating, and disorientation, as well as other symptoms.

There are also many physical symptoms associated with traumatic brain injury. These may include lack of coordination, visual difficulties, and some motor skill loss. Other symptoms sometimes related to TBI include difficulty walking, extreme headaches, and sometimes seizures.

Traumatic brain injuries can have numerous psychological symptoms. One of the most bizarre symptoms may be changes in the person's personality. Also, many will suffer from tinnitus if they have a traumatic brain injury. Tinnitus is when a person hears noises, with no external noises are present, in one or both of their ears. The sounds that they can hear vary; however, it usually is a ringing noise. Many other cases of TBI involve depression. Individuals may suffer depression as a result of a TBI, or because of other symptoms due to the injury.

Brain injuries are not always the easiest type of injury to assess. Since the brain is such an extremely complex organ, and since injuries to it can affect many different aspects of bodily function, from motor skills and coordination to cognitive processes, it may be hard to determine whether an accident has caused a brain injury or not. This is one of the many reasons that brain injuries are so devastating to both the victim and their families.

It is important to note that symptoms of brain injury will vary from case to case. Symptoms can last anywhere from days to years. The most serious cases of brain injury can result in a coma or even death. If you or someone you know experiences some of these symptoms, you should seek medical attention as quickly as possible.
