The symptoms of a diffuse axonal brain injury are very similar to those of other traumatic brain injuries. These symptoms include headaches, loss of consciousness, and dizziness. However, someone who suffers a diffuse axonal injury will often lose consciousness for an extended period of time or fall into a coma. The damage done to the nerves in the brain can cause permanent brain damage and even death.
