If you suffer from a trauma to your head, you may not be aware that you have a brain injury because there are typically no visible signs. However, a concussion or brain injury that results from a traumatic blow to your head can actually be very serious. A brain injury can greatly affect your quality of life and the symptoms that result from this type of injury can become very debilitating and may affect you well into the future if your injury is not treated properly.
Children can also suffer from brain injuries and concussions related to accidents, falls, or sports injuries. It’s often hard to determine if your child has sustained a brain injury but some of the things to look for are:
- Changes in the way they play or act.
- Being upset easily or emotional.
- A sad mood.
- Lack of interest in their usual activities
- A headache that does not go away
- Loss of balance and trouble walking.
- Not being able to pay attention.
