Symptoms & Effects of Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries
A traumatic brain injury may be due to any blow to the head, which requires timely medical care to treat the injury. Victims may experience symptoms like loss of memory or consciousness, as well as confusion or disorientation. Other common symptoms include fatigue, dizziness, headache, vomiting, and problems with vision, hearing, or speech. Fatality from spinal cord injuries is less common as brain injuries. The spinal cord is a pathway of nerves sending signals from the brain, down the spine, and to various parts of the body. These nerves control our body’s motor and sensory functions, so a spinal cord injury will typically lead to sensory or mobility loss in areas located below the injury.
