How Can My Car Accident Cause Foggy Brain?
When we are involved in an accident whether it be by car, train, plane or bus it can have a dramatic impact on our life and life functions one of which is thinking clearly. How could an accident cause me to think unclearly? Acceleration and deceleration pressure can place substantial pressure on the brain itself inside the skull as the brain is literally thrown from inside the skull to the other side causing what is known as a coup contrecoup injury to the brain. This causes brain damage literally killing your brain cells and injuring others. This causes you a loss of memory and the inability to think clearly. It is very important to have this evaluated quickly to avoid potential permanent damage.
Warning signs of spinal injury include but are not limited to: neck, back and chest pain, headache, nausea, inability to find a comfortable position, and feeling like you need to hold your neck to get relief.
Warning signs of brain injury include: dizziness, vertigo, foggy brain, loss of smell, and double vision.
