Symptoms of Anoxic Brain Damage

Recovery from anoxic brain damage can be uncertain and can take a long time. Your chance for recovery depends on how long you were exposed to low oxygen. Severe damage may lead to a Coma or a vegetative state. Mild to moderate anoxic brain damage may cause:

  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Decreased concentration and attention span
  • Mood swings and/or personality change
  • Intermittent loss of consciousness
  • Seizures
  • Parkinson's like syndrome
  • Abnormal muscle jerks with movements

Many people with mild brain damage can usually recover much of their neurologic function or successfully learn to live with any remaining disabilities.
