A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can have a devastating impact on a person
who suffers one and their family, particularly if a traumatic brain injury
is left untreated or is treated improperly. This makes it crucial to recognize
the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury in order to seek treatment as

an impact and don’t think anything is wrong. However, a head impact
victim should be seen by a medical professional as soon as possible.

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:
- 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.
