After a head trauma, no matter how minimal or severe patients may have an increase in symptoms. Symptoms are unique to each patient but may include; headaches, dizziness, change in taste, change in sleep habits, quicker to anger or agitation and so on. Some patients claim to have no symptoms or discomfort immediately after their head trauma. They can still suffer from second syndrome.
Why does second syndrome occur?
The part of the neuron that sends a signal is not functioning properly. Leading to decreased brain function.
When does second syndrome occur?
The answer to that is unsure. It is different timing for each patients but usually symptoms increase within the first two years.
Second Impact Syndrome:
Occurs when the brain swells rapidly, and catastrophically, after a person suffers a second concussion before symptoms from an earlier one have subsided. This second blow may occur minutes, days, or weeks..... after an initial concussion, and even the mildest grade of concussion can lead to SIS.
Why do people suffer from second impact syndrome?
In patients who sustain a second concussion when the first ones has not healed, the brain loses its ability to auto regulate intracranial and cerebral perfusion pressure. This may lead to cerebral edema, severe swelling of the brain, and possible brain herniation.
