Signs and Symptoms of PTSD

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a common disorder. People are believed to have PTSD when they feel intense fear, horror, or helplessness after a traumatic event. The triggering events of PTSD can be anything such as any road accident a person experienced in the past, the event of losing someone close, war or torture, and so on.

People with PTSD often experience feelings of panic or extreme fear. This fear may be similar to how they felt during the traumatic event. The following are the four primary types of PTSD experiences:

Re-living the traumatic event

The person with PTSD may relive the bad event again and again. The recurring memories and flashbacks will keep torturing the person and the condition will aggravate further. The person will have intense emotional or physical reactions when reminded of the event.

Being overly alert
