Concussions are a mild traumatic brain injury that can typically occur when a person suffers a hit to the head. The MRI or CT scan doesn’t necessarily show any abnormalities; however, the patient may experience various symptoms that indicate the concussion. What’s interesting is that the symptoms often don’t show up for hours or even days after the accident took place.
What are some of the symptoms of concussion?
According to Brain Injury Association of America, the symptoms may include (but are not limited to): Headache, Nausea/Vomiting, Tinnitus (ringing in ears), Blurred Vision, Sensitivity to Light, Irritability, Depression/Anxiety, Impulsivity, Lack of Initiation, Impaired Awareness, Attention, Word Finding, and Memory Problems, Difficulty Filtering Noise, Trouble Focusing, Drowsiness, Excessive Sleep, Insomnia, and/or Altered Sleep Patterns1.
