If you lose consciousness and/or experience confusion and disorientation for less that 30 minutes, then you probably have suffered from mild traumatic brain injury (TBI)
. This occurs when the head is involved in a forceful motion or impact that results in a change of mental activity.
CAT and MRI scans usually show no sign of problems and the most common symptons are often overlooked. Don't let the word "mild" fool you; mild TBI and its effects can be devastating.
Those who suffer from mild TBI often seem normal after the initial injury and may show no signs of brain trauma for several days or weeks, which is why it is a usual missed diagnosis. Be familiar with the common symptoms in case you or a loved one might be at risk:
-Headaches and dizziness/balance-loss
-Difficulty with memory, attention and concentration
-Mood swings, irritability and emotional disturbances
