Recognizing Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms

What is traumatic brain injury? Also known as TBI, a traumatic brain injury occurs when the normal function of the brain is disrupted by a jolt, bump, or blow to the head. TBI can range in severity from mild (a concussion) to severe (comatose). The severity of a TBI typically determines the severity of symptoms. It’s not uncommon for victims of mild TBIs to experience brief periods of unconsciousness. However, some victims of mild traumatic brain injury never lose consciousness. Therefore, it is important to be aware of other symptoms of spinal cord and traumatic brain symptoms:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Blurred vision
  • Bad taste in the mouth
  • Fatigue
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Memory loss
  • Mood changes
  • Trouble sleeping.

Besides experiencing the after-effects mentioned above, victims of moderate or severe TBI may also vomit, convulse, and get confused. In addition, they may have trouble sleeping, talking, or waking from sleep.

If you or a loved one is experiencing any symptoms of a TBI, it’s important you get medical help right away. TBI symptoms don’t always appear right away, and the longer you wait to get medical help, the more possible it is for complications to develop.

Brain Injury Statistics 

Every year, millions of people across the country suffer from traumatic brain injury. And unfortunately, the number is growing. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the number of TBI-related emergency department visits increased by 53% over an 8-year period. Of the more than 288,000 people hospitalized and diagnosed with TBI each year, 57,000 will tragically die. The CDC also reports that more than 800,000 children (under the age of 17) are treated annually for a brain and spinal cord injury.

Although the majority of traumatic brain injury victims are able to make a complete recovery, a staggering percentage of victims are left with permanent disabilities. As you can imagine, serious TBIs can have devastating consequences for victims. Many traumatic brain injury victims not only suffer physically, but emotionally, psychologically, and financially.

What is Spinal Cord Injury?

A brain injury can affect the victim's quality of life.

In the United States, more than 17,000 new cases of spinal cord injuries (SCIs) occur every year and more than 290,000 Americans are currently living with a spinal cord injury, reports the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC). Likewise, the majority of SCI victims are male (78%) and almost 48% of new cases result in partial paralysis of the arms or legs.

Spinal cord injuries occur when the spinal cord suffers a traumatic injury. The spinal cord is an intricate bundle of nerves designed to send “messages” between the brain and the rest of the body. Damage to the spinal cord can interfere with the communication between the brain and the body and, therefore, how the body responds.

If a victim has suffered a complete SCI, as it’s commonly referred to by doctors, he or she has paralysis at the level of injury and below. Those victims suffering from an incomplete SCI experience partial paralysis at the level of injury and below.

Just as a traumatic brain injury can have devastating effects, a serious spinal cord injury can forever change a victim’s way of life. A large majority of SCI victims suffer from a number of secondary injuries, such as chronic pain, pressure sores, respiratory issues, sexual dysfunction, and bowel and bladder dysfunction.

Many SCI victims also suffer psychologically and emotionally. According to recent statistics, as many as 37% of SCI victims suffer from some form of depression.

What are Common Causes of a Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injury?

One of the leading causes of both traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries is car accidents. Thus, the NSCISC reports that 39% of spinal cord injuries are due to traffic accidents, and nearly 17% of all traffic accidents result in TBI. Car accidents continue to be the leading cause of spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury-related deaths for children and teens.

Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries can also be caused by:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Acts of violence
  • Contact sports
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Trucking accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Train accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Physical abuse
  • Construction accidents
  • Medical negligence
