Getting injured can be very traumatic, especially when there is damage of internal organs such as your brain. A brain injury may be readily apparent, though sometimes it may take weeks or months to become noticeable. In time, your brain injury may become worse and if not taken care of, you may become incapacitated. It is of the highest importance that you spot the potential symptoms right away, before it is too late.
Common symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include neck pain, ringing in the ears, confusion, inability to be attentive or to process information, having certain limitations on your reading/writing skills, seizures, tremor, swallowing issues, dizziness, light-headedness, blurry vision, or the inability to taste or smell things properly.
