Signs and Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

November 1, 2013

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are one of the leading types of severe injuries suffered in the United States. Almost 250,000 people are treated for traumatic brain injury each year. While some victims of TBIs are able to recover to a normal and healthy lifestyle, others suffer permanent disabilities.  Most traumatic brain injuries are closed head injuries, meaning there is no open and obvious wound. Some symptoms may not be immediately obvious. These signs and symptoms include:

  • Impaired vision; blurred and/or double vision
  • Severe headaches; unable to relieve headache
  • Seizure
  • Loss of memory recall
  • Irritability
  • Unable to sleep
  • Inability to recall words when trying to speak
  • Fatigue even when sleeping
  • Imbalance
  • Loss of motor skills
  • Unable to process information
  • Vomiting
  • Muscle spasm
  • Change in ability to taste or smell
  • Difficulty in relating to others; withdraw socially
