In brief: Wide range of effect
Severe tbi can have major effects with up to a 40 % mortality.
However, the more common mild tbi may have more mild effects which may still be disconcerting to the patient. These include headache, nausea/vomiting, trouble with thinking/focusing, balance problems, blurred/double vision, ringing in the ears. New studies with MRI scans are showing subtle bruises that previously were undetected.
