More than 300,000 men and women who served our country return home with Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI. More than half of our fallen heroes are unable to get the proper treatment, care and diagnosis needed for their injuries.
Traumatic Brain Injury occurs when the head suddenly and violently hits an object or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue. Symptoms of TBI can be mild, moderate, or severe depending how much the brain is damaged.
Mild TBI can cause headache, confusion, light-headedness, dizziness, blurred vision or tired eyes, ringing in the ears, bad taste in the mouth, fatigue or lethargy, a change in sleep patterns, behavioral or mood changes, and trouble with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking
Moderate to severe TBI symptoms include the same as above along with headache that gets worse or does not go away, repeated vomiting or nausea, convulsions or seizures, an inability to awaken from sleep, dilation of one or both pupils of the eyes, slurred speech, weakness or numbness in the extremities, loss of coordination, and increased confusion, restlessness, or agitation.
