Signs of a Lasting Concussion
There are a wide range of symptoms of a lasting concussion or post-concussion syndrome, and you may have one or multiple symptoms. Persistent post-concussive symptoms include, but are not limited to:
If you are experiencing a head injury that is severe enough to cause confusion or amnesia, you should see a doctor. Even if you never lost consciousness, you may still have experienced a concussion, and it’s important to get proper treatment for concussion recovery.
Concussions can lead to long-term effects such as trouble concentrating, memory problems, irritability, and even personality changes. With persistent post-concussion syndrome, you may be sensitive to light and noise, or experience headaches long after the injury occurred.
Whether you have a mild traumatic brain injury or severe, living with a TBI can be challenging. The emotional and behavioral changes that people with TBI experience can cause a significant amount of stress for both the individual and their loved ones. TBIs can also affect performance at work and school. Traumatic brain injury can even cause personality changes.
Living with a traumatic brain injury is challenging, but it is manageable. The team at Plasticity Centers is here to help. Schedule an appointment in Denver, Atlanta, or Orlando.
If your child gets a concussion, it’s vital to get concussion treatment from your doctor or to visit a brain injury center like Plasticity Centers. If your child is playing a sport and is hit in the head, they must immediately stop playing and be observed. Call a doctor if your child shows any signs of concussion.
