What Types of Effects does a TBI have on a Person?

 

A traumatic brain injury is referencing any injury to the brain that has a lasting effect. Symptoms of a TBI include:

  • Irritability
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Vertigo
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Mood swings
  • Difficulty remembering a word (tip-of-the-tongue syndrome)
  • Coordination problems
  • Impaired motor function

Many times, these traumatic brain injuries may eventually lead to death. Because brain injuries often result in long-term loss of function, they tend to affect the entire family. Not only must the brain injury victim cope with pain, emotional stress, and a long recovery, he or she must also worry about finances and the cost of ongoing medical treatment. When you have a family to support and a job to protect, this can be an overwhelming burden.
