What is TBI?

A forceful hit or jolt to the head or body frequently causes traumatic brain damage. Traumatic brain injury can also be caused by an object that passes through brain tissue, such as a gunshot or a fractured piece of skull.

A mild traumatic brain injury can cause temporary damage to your brain cells. Bruising, torn tissues, hemorrhage, and other physical damage to the brain can occur with more acute traumatic brain injury. Long-term problems or mortality can occur as a result of these injuries.

A person with a mild TBI may experience any of the following traumatic brain injury symptoms:

  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Lightheadedness
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears, also known as tinnitus
  • Tiredness or sleepiness
  • A bad taste in the mouth
  • A change in sleep habits
  • Behavior or mood changes
  • Trouble with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking
  • Loss of consciousness lasting a few seconds to minutes1
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Nausea or vomiting
