The physical effects of brain injury are wide ranging but can include fatigue, sleep issues, headaches, dizziness and hearing problems.
These physical effects can have an impact on your quality of life and make it harder to complete every day activities. It is important to develop strategies to minimise these effects, such as maintaining a healthy lifestyle and undertaking physical therapy where necessary.
Fatigue is a common and highly disabling symptom experienced by people with a brain injury.
Lack of sleep has a negative effect on our ability to think, mood, energy levels and appetite. The average person needs around eight hours sleep a night or will suffer from decreased concentration, energy and many other problems.
