Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion: 40 Symptoms You Should Know

It’s estimated that 40% of people who are involved in a car accident receive a concussion but aren’t diagnosed.

This may be because an injured victim doesn’t recognize the signs of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Or the CT or MRI scan missed the microscopic injuries to their brain’s neurons and neural connections and they didn’t get a second opinion.

The brain is complicated. There are a wide variety of possible symptoms that can occur due to post-concussive syndrome. The most common symptoms of TBI include mood/personality changes, brain fog, trouble focusing, headaches, and memory problems.

Slightly less common but still prevalent among TBI victims is sensitivity to sound and light, sleep disturbances (sleeping too much or too little), balance problems, dizziness, changes in vision, and nausea.

In a study involving more than 350,000 veterans, scientists found that even mild TBI without loss of consciousness put victims at a greater risk for dementia. They also documented a wide range of persistent symptoms that developed after the head injury occurred.

Here is an in-depth list of persisting symptoms of post-concussive syndrome arranged from most common to least common:
