What Are the Symptoms of Concussion?
The University of Florida is one of 11 colleges invited to participate in a massive study of the long-term impact of concussions. More and more research has shown the serious effect this brain injury can have on people who sustain trauma to the head.
Organized as a partnership between the NCAA and the Department of Defense, the study has a goal of enrolling an astounding 37,000 service members and collegiate athletes to advance diagnosis, treatment, and prevention efforts. The leader of concussion research at the University of Florida has called it “the biggest concussion study ever undertaken.”
Football players and soldiers aren’t the only ones who should know the signs of a concussion. Accident victims are also at risk for this traumatic brain injury, which should be diagnosed as soon as possible to reduce the risk of complications.
Symptoms of a concussion include:
- Confusion and difficulty concentrating
- Trouble balancing
- Memory problems
- Light sensitivity
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty answering questions and forming words
- Changes in sleep patterns
