Can a Brain Injury Be Long Term?

When life takes a turn and someone suffers a serious and traumatic brain injury, it can be difficult to understand what comes next. Fortunately for some, the effects they experience are treated and the symptoms may be relieved in a short time period.

However, for others, they may not be quite as lucky and the symptoms experienced from a traumatic brain injury may last a lifetime. Here are some of the unfortunate problems that individuals can experience due to the long-term symptoms of a brain injury.

Delays In Development

Did you know that the human brain stops developing around the age of 25 or so? Because of this, when an injury occurs, it can cause serious delays in development as a result. There are a number of problems that can arise as a result of this, including the following:

  • Difficulty making specific decisions
  • Trouble in social settings
  • Problems with controlling behavioral changes
  • Loss of memory or ability to learn

Impact On Lifestyle

Because some of the most severe brain injuries can result in plenty of behavioral and learning effects, it is important to understand what changes the damage may have on the injured party’s life. For instance, if the brain injury causes constant fatigue or blurred vision, it may impact the ability to drive.

If the brain injury results in serious social issues, it may impact a person’s ability to work or go to school, depending on the age. These problems can be long term and the individual may be unable to properly heal.
