What is pain like after a traumatic brain injury?

The pain after a traumatic brain injury is something that almost anyone who has had one can likely recall. This pain isn't limited only to pain at the site of the injury. Instead, the pain can easily spread to other areas of the body. Not all of the pain after a TBI is fully understood.

When does the pain associated with the TBI occur?

The pain that is associated with a TBI can occur as soon as the injury happens. It can last for years after the injury. In some cases, it can come and go, but in other cases, it is a constant battle to control the pain that plagues that victim.

Is all pain the same after a TBI?

There are different types of pain that can happen because of a TBI. Each type can require different treatments, and they can all affect the victim in different ways. Neuropathic pain and headaches are the most common types of pain that a person can suffer. These types of pain might be controlled with medications, but it is important to balance the quality of life with the totality of the pain control. Other types of pain include increased muscle tension, deep venous thrombosis and orthopedic trauma pain.

Even when pain can be controlled, the methods used can be costly and might affect the person's ability to enjoy life to the fullest. In the cases in which the brain injury was caused by an accident, it might be possible to seek compensation from the person who was responsible for the accident.
