How do symptoms of traumatic brain injuries manifest?

Published on Feb 22, 2021 at 5:23 pm in injuries.

After suffering from a brain injury, you are likely to experience symptoms that linger. Some may stick around for days or weeks. Others might last years. A few even last indefinitely, stretching out over a person’s lifetime.

To understand what you will face in the future, it is important to understand what is happening to you in the present. Thus, knowing how injuries manifest is crucial.

Behavioral effects

Mayo Clinic looks into the manifestation of traumatic brain injury symptoms in victims. The symptoms differ depending on several factors, like your age and health, along with the location and severity of the injury. Some symptoms will manifest in your personality. For example, you may feel irritation and anger in more situations. TBI sufferers tend to struggle with their temper and lash out at others without meaning to. This unfortunately causes upset to both the victim and their loved ones.

Mental effects

TBIs can affect you mentally, too. This is particularly true when it comes to memory loss. TBI victims have a higher rate of suffering from short term memory problems. This often persists for years. Many have to make permanent lifestyle changes to make up for this. You may forget everything from appointment dates to where you place important documents. Because of this, it can impact your daily life and even your ability to work.

Physical effects

Finally, TBI sufferers deal with physical effects, too. The most common ones involve headaches, head pressure and migraines. These can get so bad that it requires separate and further medical intervention after the TBI has mostly healed.

Unfortunately, all of this medical care costs a lot. Thus, you may want to contact a legal expert. They can help you gain the financial compensation you deserve.
