Brain injuries have been categorized as mild, moderate and severe.
However, these categories are misleading. A mild closed head brain injury can have a very severe impact on your life. People who suffer from mild closed head brain injuries can have serious problems remembering conversations and instructions. They can have problems selecting what words to use when speaking with other people.
They can suffer from severe headaches and nausea. They can have difficulty controlling their emotions. They can experience a dramatic change in their personality.
Often, the best people to talk to about a closed head injury is the person’s family, close friends, or co-workers. These people know what the injured person was like before they were injured and they can tell us what changes they have seen since the injury.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI), a form of acquired brain injury, occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. TBI can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object, or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue. Symptoms of a TBI can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent of the damage to the brain.
Closed head injuries can be fairly serious in that they can be life altering in so many ways — Learn more by visiting the Traumatic Brain Injury Information Page at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders.
