Physical symptoms can include dizziness and balance problems; tiredness or a lack of energy; headaches; nausea and vomiting; and vision problems. Victims may also be sensitive to light or noise.

In addition, victims of traumatic brain injuries may experience difficulty focusing on concentrating on problems; may have trouble thinking clearly; may feel foggy or groggy; and may suffer short-term memory challenges. Victims may also suffer anxiety or nervousness and feel irritable or be easy to anger.
