A mild brain injury is denoted by a loss of consciousness for a half hour or less, while a severe brain injury can happen when you lose consciousness for an hour or more. It’s also important to note that traumatic brain injuries, regardless of whether they are mild or severe, can take days or weeks to manifest. As a result, it’s important you speak to your doctor immediately after a head injury if you are demonstrating any of the following symptoms.
Here are some signs you may be suffering from a mild brain injury:
- Trouble with coordination, both in terms of fine-motor skills as well as basic walking
- Intense mood swings or uncharacteristically violent and aggressive outbursts
- Issues with your senses, such as a loss of smell, over-sensitivity to light and sound, changes in taste (or a continual bad taste in your mouth).
- Excessive sleeping
- Memory loss
