Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI happens once every 11 seconds in the United States mostly due to falls, sports injuries and motor vehicle accidents. Most people equate concussion with mild TBI but they are technically different. Many people who are injured do not even realize that there is an injury. Often the person is slightly stunned and then appears to recover. Many issues may persist due to the injury and problems may appear in different parts of the body. Symptoms of concussion vary from person to person. Problems can be in one or more of the following areas:
- Loss of motivation
- Impaired social judgment
- Increased risk-taking
- Disregard for the future
- Anxiety and/or depression
- Failure to recognize impact of one’s behavior on others
- Sudden increase in libido with a loss of libidinal control
- Poor grooming and hygiene
- Loudness not associated with hearing loss.
- Indifference to the needs of others
- Impaired Memory
- Attention Deficit
- “Foggy Thinking”
- Unexplained hormonal imbalances such as thyroid, adrenal and blood sugar issues
- Headaches including migraines
- Bladder or bowel changes such as IBS
