Behavioral Symptoms Following Brain Injury
Brain injury victims typically experience behavioral symptoms after their injury. The behavioral changes are the emotional symptoms the TBI survivor experiences. Common behavioral changes following TBI can include the following:
- More Emotional
- Mood Swings
- Temper Outbursts
- Emotional Lability – emotions out of proportion to the situation
- Loss of Interest
- Self-Esteem Issues
- Social Isolation or Withdrawal
- Lack of Impulse Control
- Risk Taking
While the behavioral symptoms alone can be debilitating and disabling, when combined with the Cognitive Symptoms, Physical Symptoms and Sleep Changes that typically result from Traumatic Brain Injury, there is oftentimes little doubt as to the global impact these changes have on all areas of the brain injury survivor’s life.
