Serious Neurological Symptoms

The symptoms of a brain aneurysm or brain hematoma before rupture, a brain tumor(s)  and brain injury may be similar. The same holds true for numerous other neurological conditions, such as those associated with memory loss. Initially, even minor brain injuries may not be associated with serious symptoms until the damage progresses swiftly over time. One or more of the following symptoms or any unusual symptom  may be a warning sign for an eminent emergency.

  • Headache that stays on for days and weeks
  • Reduced ability to manage daily living skills, which the affected individual may or may not be aware of.
  • Seizures
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Drowsiness
  • Stiffness in the neck
  • Lack of coordination
  • Difficulty in writing, speaking and movement
  • Difficulty in vision
  • Loss of consciousness or fluctuating levels of consciousness

Because of the critical nature of the above mentioned symptoms, prompt care through an appropriate diagnosis and timely treatment may improve life quality, prevent more serious permanent conditions, and may be life saving in cases of emergent conditions, such as a brain hematoma before rupture.
