Mild Brain Injury

Sometimes, when the head is struck or moved violently, there’s trauma to the brain. Brain injuries do not necessarily result from loss of consciousness and the person may not appear to need medical care or attention. Even so, there may be some mild brain damage that interferes with a person’s everyday living.

Victims may suffer physical or mental symptoms like loss of memory or disorientation. The injury may go undiagnosed, but the person may be observed responding more slowly than usual or complaining about physical and mental discomfort.

Symptoms of mild brain injury may include fatigue, headache, dizziness, hearing loss, ringing in the ears, memory problems, sleep difficulties, irritability, and short attention span. Even though termed “mild”, this type of injury can lead to long-term effects and cognitive problems.
