Top 2 Foggy Feeling in the Head Causes

  1. 1.Concussion Not Needing Imaging

    A traumatic brain injury (TBI), or concussion, happens when a bump, blow, jolt, or other head injury causes damage to the brain. Every year, millions of people in the U.S. suffer brain injuries. More than half are bad enough that people must go to the hospital, and the worst injuries can lead to permanent brain damage or death.

    You do not need to seek immediate medical care. Make sure your symptoms do not change. If they do, go immediately to the ER. If not, follow-up with the doctor in the coming days.

  2. 2.Concussion (Mild Traumatic Brain Injury) Needing Imaging

    Mild traumatic brain injury requiring imaging is defined as being fairly responsive after an injury to the head but with enough warning signs that a picture of the inside of the skull needs to be taken.

    You should go to the emergency room as soon as possible (within the next hour). The risk factors and symptoms around your injury make it possible that something serious is developing within your skull, and thus, a picture needs to be taken.

    Rarity:
    Common
    Top Symptoms:
    nausea or vomiting, dizziness, sensitivity to light, difficulty concentrating, frequent mood swings
    Symptoms that always occur with concussion (mild traumatic brain injury) needing imaging:
