National Brain Injury Awareness Month is a time to recognize the millions of Americans living with traumatic brain injury (TBI)-related disabilities. TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Physical signs and symptoms of TBI include headache, fuzzy or blurry vision, nausea or vomiting (early on), dizziness, sensitivity to noise or light, balance problems, or feeling tired or having no energy. Some symptoms might appear right away while others might not be noticed for days or months after injury. To learn more about traumatic brain injury, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
