A brain injury needs to be identified so the injured person can get the help they need, but it can be easier said than done to arrive at a proper diagnosis. One of the biggest problems with so-called closed head injuries is that you can’t detect the injury without certain kinds of tests.
When there is an absence of a bloody wound or another obvious sign of possible damage to a person’s brain, some of the other physical symptoms of a brain injury can elude the injured person’s family members and even their doctors. Some of these symptoms can seem insignificant or unrelated to head trauma the victim has experienced:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Problems with balance
- Dizziness and double vision
- Sensitivity to light
- Sensitivity to noise
