Brain injuries are not easy to detect and sometimes can be a silent killer. Many famous athletes who suffer concussions or head injuries don’t even know they have a brain injury. The same goes for those who work in high-risk jobs such as:
- Police Officers
- Healthcare Workers
Unfortunately, there are not many tests' doctors can request to determine if you may in fact have or are suffering from a brain injury. It is important to note that even when CT scans are requested, brain injuries can go undetected.
Depending on the severity of a brain injury people may experience symptoms at varying degrees of severity. Some of the symptoms and areas affected by a brain injury can be:
- Chronic Headaches
- Light and Sound Sensitivity
- Coordination & balance
Brain injuries fall along a very wide spectrum, ranging from a mild concussion to a traumatic life-altering injury. A simple slip and fall, or a minor bump to the head, can lead to catastrophic consequences.
Many individuals will not even associate any of these symptoms or affected areas with a brain injury. This happens a lot when there is nothing physical to see such as scars that may have led them to believe this could have caused long-term damage.
Unfortunately, the longer you let the brain injury go on, the worse it can be. It is important that you seek medical treatment right away. Connect with doctors who are experienced with brain related traumas, in order to get diagnosed correctly.
