March is National Brain Injury Awareness Month. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or a penetrating head injury which disrupts the normal function of the brain. Physical signs and symptoms of TBI can include loss of consciousness, state of being dazed, headache, fuzzy or blurry vision, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, sensitivity to light, balance problems, or feeling tired or having no energy. To learn more about brain injury awareness, visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website, the Defense Centers of Excellence website, the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center, and the Naval Center COSC website.
