Brain Fog After an Injury Could Be Serious
If brain fog is experienced after an injury, especially one involving the head or neck, you made need a medical evaluation. Less-severe causes of mental cloudiness after an injury are a concussion, which goes away with time. In some cases, it may indicate a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Concussions are a type of TBI, which can be mild, moderate, or severe. In some cases, TBIs cause cognitive, physical, social, and emotional problems. This happens from bleeding, swelling, and other trauma in the brain. Getting treatment for a TBI sooner improves prognosis depending on the severity of the injury.
