Should you be worried about your concussion?

Maryland residents who suffer from head injuries can experience an array of symptoms. Some head injuries may be light and require very little outside interference to heal well. Other head injuries, however, can be quite severe and result in long-lasting or very traumatic damages.

Mayo Clinic discusses the symptoms unique to severe brain trauma. If you experience any of these, then the damage you're facing could be quite serious and usually requires immediate medical attention. These symptoms can be divided into two categories: mental and physical. 

If you have a severe injury, the mental response you could face may include extreme agitation or confusion. Short-term amnesia is possible, and combatant behavior can be a sign that something is seriously wrong. You may also slur your words. In some cases, you could even lose consciousness or become comatose, which should warrant a swift trip to the emergency room.

Physical signs have a wider range, generally speaking. They can include everything from heaviness or numbness in the limbs to severe or worsening headaches. Seizures, vomiting and nausea are also common signs of severe brain trauma. If you see blood or clear fluids draining from the ears or nose, this is one of the biggest warnings that the injury may be dire. You should be immediately taken to the hospital at that point.

The treatment of severe or acute brain injury and heavy brain trauma differs from treatment for light brain injuries. For this reason, recognizing the signs of a more serious injury and treating it accordingly can make all of the difference in your recovery's outcome.
