Traumatic Brain Injuries May Be Overlooked as ‘Minor’ Head Bumps

Every year, approximately 1.5 million Americans sustain traumatic brain injury, ranging from mild to severe. About 75% of these injuries are classified as “mild.” 10% to 20% of those injured suffer unresolved, chronic post-concussive symptoms. The symptoms often include any combination of the following: chronic headaches, confusion, dizziness, blurred or double vision, light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, inability to multi-task, frustration, anger, word retrieval issues, short-term memory loss, loss of libido, nausea/vomiting, executive functioning and concentration issues, seizures, loss of appetite, slurred speech, ringing in the ears, and fatigue. Those persons unfortunate enough to not overcome these symptoms within twelve to eighteen months post-accident are referred to as the “miserable minority.”
