How to Tell Whether You've Sustained a Brain Injury?

Brain injuries can sometimes be difficult to diagnose, and this is because sometimes the symptoms associated with them don’t show up until hours, days or weeks later. That’s part of why it’s so important to seek medical treatment immediately after you’ve been involved in an accident. Doctors can order MRIs and CT Scans that can help them determine whether you suffer from internal bleeding around the brain or any other serious types of brain injuries. Additionally, there are a variety of other tests that doctors and neurological experts can perform to determine whether your cognitive processes are functioning properly.

Understanding the Severity Ratings of Traumatic Brain Injury

Make no mistake. All TBIs are serious because they harm the brain and disrupt brain function in varying ways for varying periods of time. However, neurologists use something called the Glasgow Coma Scale and other measures to differentiate TBIs into severe, moderate, and mild. The “mild” type is by far the most common.
Ongoing research into the causes and outcomes of mild TBI keeps changing our view of what a mild TBI really is. Not too long ago physicians thought a mild TBI (a concussion) was a purely transient disruption of brain function with no organic damage to the brain and no potential for long term or permanent harm. Research spurred by mild TBIs to NFL players and to soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan has disproven these assumptions. Although not all mild TBIs are permanently life changing some of them are, and all of them involve at least a slight amount of organic brain damage.
Two of the differences between mild TBI and TBI classed as moderate to severe are:
(1) Mild TBI tends to resolve more quickly, requires fewer rehab services, and tends to respond more readily to rehab services; and
(2) Frequently victims of mild TBI tend to be more aware of and more emotionally troubled by their deficits than victims of more severe TBI who tend to be grateful just to be alive.

The Different Levels of Traumatic Brain Injury

Severe TBI can cause death; comas lasting days, weeks or months; permanent vegetative state; chronic under-arousal; serious disorders of basic functions including seeing, reading, talking, swallowing or walking; seizures; muscle paralysis; muscle spasticity; abnormal bone growth; apathy; impulsivity; dementia or psychosis. Victims of severe TBI are not always, but often rendered unemployable. They may be wheelchair bound. They may need full or partial home care assistance for life. Frequently they are no longer able to drive.

Moderate TBI

can cause substantial lifetime impairments of cognitive, visual, motor, emotional, social, sexual or vocational functioning with ongoing need for home assistance, job assistance and therapies.

Mild TBI

can cause headache; dizziness; ringing in the ears; balance problems; insomnia; subtle decrease in attention, memory, information processing speed, organizational skills and multi-tasking; vulnerability to over-stimulation in public; and behavioral change manifested by altered personality, anxiety, depression, irritability, lost self-esteem, and social avoidance. Undiagnosed mild TBI increases the risk for alcoholism and anti-social behavior. Multiple mild TBIs increase the risk for suicidal thinking and suicide.
