How do I know if I have sustained a brain injury?
Ruth Moen talks with client Arlyn Dodson
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain, usually as a result of a motor vehicle collision, sports accident, blunt force trauma or serious fall. The damage can be confined to one area of the brain, or involve several areas.
Traumatic Brain Injuries are often a permanent, life-changing event. The victim may never be the same again. The costs can be astronomical: emotionally, financially, and socially.
The symptoms of TBI can include, but are not limited to the following physical, cognitive and emotional consequences:
- Behavior and personality changes | such as impulsive behavior, increased agitation and reduced anger thresholds
- Concentration problems and problems completing tasks
- Depression and anxiety | Severe mood swings
- Difficulty multi-tasking | Inability to perform career related tasks
- Equilibrium and balance problems | Spatial disorientation
- Headaches, vomiting and nausea
- Impaired reasoning skills | Inability to plan or solve problems
- Impaired speech and difficulty communicating | Inability to find words or carry on a conversation
- Loss of sensory awareness, such as touch, taste or smell
- Paralysis | Partial or total
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Seizure and spasms
- Short-term or long-term loss of memory
- Vision impairment | Double vision, blurred vision or total blindness
