Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion

Have you or your child had recent trauma to the head? Sometimes people recover almost immediately, yet oftentimes symptoms can last for days, even weeks. Typically, a slower recovery is present in older adults, young children, and teens. Additionally, if you've had a concussion before, the chances of having another are considerable with a longer recovery time. 

Symptoms usually fall into four categories: 

  1. Thinking/Remembering:
    • Difficulty thinking clearly
    • Feeling lethargic
    • Difficulty focusing 
    • Poor memory
  2. Physical:
    • Headache
    • Blurred vision
    • Nausea and dizziness  
    • Sensitive to noise or light
    • Lack of energy
    • Trouble balancing
  3. Emotional/Mood:
    • Frustration
    • Sadness
    • Anxiousness and nervousness
  4. Sleep:
    • Differences in sleep patterns (more or less sleep)
    • Insomnia 

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) symptoms may appear immediately or be delayed after injury. Sometimes they may be overlooked as a minor or temporary issue. Please refer here for when you should seek immediate medical attention.
