Repeated concussion may lead to serious brain disease

Recent studies reveal that people with repeated head injuries – even mild Traumatic Brain Injury, like concussion – are at risk for developing a condition called Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, or CTE. In people with CTE, brain tissue degenerates and protein builds up in the brain. Symptoms include memory loss, aggression, confusion, depression, anxiety, difficulty completing tasks, and hopelessness. Patients with TBI and degenerative brain disease may not recognize their own symptoms. It is important for people close to them to be on the lookout for warning signs. There is no way to reverse CTE, but with proper care, patients can learn skills to help them cope with its symptoms.
