If you have experienced an accident, it was most likely life-changing. This can be particularly true if you had major injuries.
A TBI is a serious injury that is often caused by accidents, but many may not be aware of this right away. Knowing the signs can help.
Emotional and mental symptoms
A TBI will often come with both emotional and physical symptoms. One of the more common emotional signs of a TBI is that you experience more mood swings and that your moods are more changeable overall. Not only that, but you may also notice more irritability and more aggression, too. Some may experience increased forgetfulness, and may also experience denial that there is an issue, even if the symptoms are obvious.
If you have a TBI, then you will likely notice physical symptoms as well. Some common ones include weakness and tremors, as well as disturbed sleep and restlessness. You may also experience seizures and disorientation. Along with this, vision issues and hearing problems are also possible. Loss of balance, slurred speech, and headache are also common symptoms of a TBI. If you have a TBI your symptoms may start out being noticeable, or they may gradually get worse over time.
An accident can be a difficult thing to go through. This can be especially true if you have experienced a TBI. By knowing what to look for, you can be better empowered to make the right choices to protect yourself and your health, as well.
