Signs and Symptoms of PTSD After a person experiences, witnesses, or hears about a trauma or traumatic event, signs and symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder, also known as PTSD, can become apparent. Developing suddenly or beginning slowly and worsening over time, PTSD symptoms can cause a great deal of disruption in a person's life. Exaggerated startle responses, flashbacks about the trauma, overwhelming anxiety, and intense fear that something bad will happen are examples of such symptoms, which can ultimately cause impairment in an individual's functioning. Avoidance of certain places, hallucinations, and difficulty sleeping can subsequently occur if treatment is not sought. Additionally, friends and loved ones may observe sufferers of this condition as being in a constant state of distress long after the initial trauma occurred. Treatment for trauma-related disorders, such as PTSD, is available and has proven effectiveness in helping those that have endured trauma. Identifying signs and symptoms of mental duress following a trauma is crucial to determining the most appropriate treatment. In doing so, adverse consequences, such as the development of another mental illness or substance abuse problem or increased risk for attempts at suicide, can be avoided if proper care is implemented for those struggling with PTSD.
