Following a traumatic brain injury (TBI), patients can expect some unfortunate consequences. Whether you were involved in a driving accident or hit by an unforeseen object, patients usually are impaired either physically or mentally. Some victims suffering from TBI can even experience epilepsy.
What Is Epilepsy?
Incidents of TBI can sometimes result in epileptic seizures. They usually start to occur only a few days after an injury and may continue for months, even years. 1 in every 10 people experience seizures after a traumatic brain injury. The symptoms are staggering and debilitating, and include:
- Shaking movement
- Strange smell, sound, and visual images
- Sudden dizziness
- Unable to speak or understand other people
Although episodes only last a few minutes, the condition has more than just physical consequences. Seizure victims are not allowed to drive for up to six months after any subsequent episode.
