A recurring or a constant headache is one of the biggest concerns following a severe auto accident. These post-traumatic headaches are typically caused by minor head injuries or whiplash. No matter how insignificant your injuries may seem following a car wreck, it’s essential to your health and your accident claim to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Your headaches could be a warning sign of something more severe such as a traumatic brain injury.
Auto accidents are among the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries, and persistent headaches are just one of the major indicators. A headache on its own may not be something to worry about initially, but when it’s accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sleepiness, it’s time to see a neurologist. Other signs of traumatic brain injuries to watch for include:
- Difficulty thinking and communicating
- Ringing ears
- Sudden behavioral changes such as aggression, apathy and impulsivity
- Trouble balancing
- Vomiting or nausea
- Light/sound sensitivity
- Slurred speech
