Brain injuries occur when some kind of external force mechanically disrupts normal brain function. This may be the result of getting hit on the head with a violent blow, or by penetration of the skull from a bullet or other foreign body, or by a jolt to the head from an overall body impact (such as a crash). In cases of mild brain trauma, the damage to the brain causes temporary dysfunction that will improve over time. More serious brain injuries can cause longer-term internal bruising, bleeding, and other tissue damage and may result in permanent brain impairment and even death.

The symptoms of brain injury are not always immediately obvious. Some signs that may be apparent immediately after the trauma occurs include:

  • Confusion, disorientation, being dazed
  • Losing consciousness
  • Headache
  • Loss of balance and coordination
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting and/or nausea
  • Blurred vision and other sensory effects such as tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Agitation
  • Aggressiveness and/or other types of unusual behavior
  • Speech slurring
  • Numb or weak fingers and/or toes
  • Seizures and convulsions
  • Pupils of one or both eyes dilate
  • Transparent fluid trickling from ears or nose

Some of these and other symptoms of brain injury may develop slowly over subsequent days or even weeks and may have far-reaching psychological impact and/or physical effects. Look out for:

  • Amnesia (memory loss)
  • Problems in concentrating
  • Light or sound sensitivity
  • Mood swings and mood changes
  • Agitation
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Drowsiness and/or fatigue
  • Sleeping difficulties (including excessive sleeping)

Symptoms of Brain Injury in Children

Children and infants who have suffered brain injury often have not yet developed sufficient communication skills to explain what they feel. For this reason it is important to carefully observe any child you suspect may have suffered some kind of head or body trauma and to seek immediate and urgent medical attention if you notice any of the following:

  • Impairment or changes in nursing habits
  • Inconsolable and persistent crying
  • Exaggerated irritability
  • Unusual lack of ability to pay attention
  • Alterations to sleeping habits (including excessive drowsiness)
  • Depression or unusually sad mood
  • Disinterest in favorite activities and toys.

Always treat any kind of head injury seriously. The most effective way to ensure complete recovery is to seek immediate diagnosis and medical treatment.
