The symptoms of diffuse brain injury, a type of traumatic brain injury, vary depending on the severity of the injury - which can range from mild to fatal - and where the injury occurred. In many cases, a loss of consciousness will occur. In worst case scenarios, the person will enter a protracted vegetative state, and death may even occur. If the person regains consciousness, common symptoms include memory loss, confusion, disorientation, and concentration problems. Other possible symptoms include headache, dizziness, sensory problems, mood changes, linguistic problems, seizures, dilated pupils, numbness, nausea, weakness, and coordination problems.
