Can a traumatic brain injury lead to sleep problems? I sustained a brain injury in a Los Angeles car accident and was hospitalized for several days. Ever since then, I have had trouble sleeping.
Yes, a traumatic brain injury can lead to sleep disturbances. Researchers have come up with different estimates when it comes to the number of patients who have sleep problems following a brain injury. One study found that as many as 73 percent of traumatic brain injury victims had trouble sleeping, but a different report showed that only 27 percent were impacted.
According to the Brain Injury Association of America, people who suffer brain injuries sometimes experience sleep difficulties. Some of these problems include not being able to fall asleep and having a hard time staying asleep.
