A: The warning signs of a serious head injury do not always surface immediately. If your husband has not done so already, he needs to seek medical treatment.
A doctor will be able to exam your husband to determine if he has suffered a traumatic brain injury. A CT scan or MRI might be ordered to confirm his diagnosis.
In the meantime, some of the symptoms to watch out for include the following:
- Persistent headache
- Continuous vomiting
- Dilation of one or both pupils
- Slurred speech
- Loss of coordination
- Inability to awaken from sleep
