Mild TBI Symptoms

Even the most seemingly-mild of TBIs should be treated with the utmost caution. If you or a loved one are exhibiting any of these symptoms, you should seek treatment as soon as possible.

Some common signs of a mild TBI include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness and/or nausea
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Temporary loss of consciousness
  • Sensitivity to light or sounds
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Chronic headaches

All of these signs point to a potential problem caused by an impact to the sensitive tissues in the brain. Concussions, contusions, and all other forms of brain impacts could cause these symptoms. However, they’re not the only signs of a possible brain injury. In fact, brain injuries are difficult to diagnose because they may not exhibit any symptoms at all for several days or maybe even months or years. This makes an accurate diagnosis at the earliest stages crucial to you or your family member’s well-being and proper treatment.

Some symptoms that may not emerge for a long period of time include:

  • Trouble concentrating
  • Continual or persistent memory loss
  • Light or noise sensitivity
  • Mood swings/stress/depression/anxiety
  • Irritability or personality changes

In the long term, TBI can result in more serious issues, including memory loss, an increased chance of Alzheimer’s, and trouble controlling your body, making even simple tasks become difficult to accomplish.
