The Hidden Dangers of a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
Lee Floyd—January 21, 2022
The symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) can vary greatly, but there are several main outcomes. On the bright side, the damage is minor and most cases will be completely healed within a few months or years. The downside of this type of TBI, however, is that its consequences may be long lasting and can cause secondary problems that last months or even years. Listed below are some of the hidden dangers of mild traumatic brain injury and how to prevent them.
Symptoms of mild TBI can take hours or even days to manifest themselves. Fortunately, most people will recover within a few weeks. While mild TBI symptoms may be hard to recognize in the beginning, they can change over time. Some individuals may notice emotional or physical difficulties, while others may be unaware of their symptoms and may even delay medical attention until they begin to feel effects later. In either case, the best option is to consult a health care provider immediately.
While symptoms of mild TBI can be subtle, they can affect your life in unexpected ways. If your TBI was severe, it may affect your ability to read, perform simple tasks, understand instructions, and remember things. Depending on the severity of your TBI, these symptoms can last for weeks or even months. The effects of TBI can also be psychological. If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek medical attention.
