Brain Injury Symptoms

Brain injury has become known as the signature wound of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan because of the prevalence of the injury. As of 2011, more than 212,000 service members sustained a TBI.

Although they can overlap, symptoms from a TBI are usually divided up into two basic categories: physical and emotional. The most common physical symptoms range from headaches and trouble sleeping to loss of balance and tinnitus, or ringing in the ears. Behavioral and emotional symptoms can range from depression and apathy to verbal outbursts and disinhibition.
