It is important to write down the symptoms you notice after your brain injury:

  • Changes in thinking
  • Changes in emotion
  • Difficulty communicating
  • Changes in your body

Download the Brain Injury Checklist and use it to record your symptoms. Take a copy of the filled-out checklist with you when you meet with your doctor and other professionals. Ask your doctor to put the checklist in your medical file.
