3) Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. TBI can happen when the head suddenly and with great force impacts an object. TBI can also occur when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue.

Symptoms of mild TBI include: headache, confusion, lightheadedness, dizziness, blurred vision or tired eyes, ringing in the ears, bad taste in the mouth, fatigue or lethargy, a change in sleep patterns, behavioral or mood changes, and trouble with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking.

A victim with a moderate or severe TBI may show these same symptoms, but may also have a headache that gets worse or does not go away, repeated vomiting or nausea, convulsions or seizures, an inability to awaken from sleep, dilation of one or both pupils of the eyes, slurred speech, weakness or numbness in the extremities, loss of coordination, and increased confusion, restlessness, or agitation.
