Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
Many people believe that you must lose consciousness to sustain a traumatic brain injury. However, that is not the case. It is also not true that you must hit your head to sustain a TBI. Individuals can suffer a TBI without hitting their heads. If the head is violently whipped back and forth or from side to side, the brain can move within the skull and violently strike the skull in one or more places. Striking the skull can cause damage to the brain in multiple places.
The symptoms of a TBI vary depending on the type of TBI and the severity of the TBI. However, there are danger signs that indicate a person needs immediate medical attention:
Seizures or convulsions
Confusion, agitation, or restlessness
Loss of consciousness
Different sized pupils
Trouble recognizing places or people
In addition to the above danger signs, if a child stops eating or nursing or will not stop crying and is inconsolable, those are danger signs that a child may have sustained a traumatic brain injury.
