Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, more commonly known as PTSD, is not always easily identifiable. The occurrence of PTSD symptoms can seem arbitrary and confusing.

A person may not associate his physical unrest with an event of psychological trauma.

PTSD is a condition that produces severe anxiety and a variety of physical effects stemming from a pivotal experience or chain of experiences such as instances of abuse, surviving a natural disaster, or witnessing/serving in a war.

It should be recognized that PTSD may still be present in a person even when he is not consciously recollecting a traumatic experience or identifying the experience as the source of his disturbances.

PTSD is an anxiety disorder that has been around since the beginning of mankind.

It is the result of being exposed to an event or events that are so severe and traumatizing that they basically overload the mind.

If you are young under the age of 20 it can physically change the brain permanently.

Symptoms include intrusive thoughts, racing thoughts, paranoia, agoraphobia, flashbacks, irritability, severe nightmares, night sweats, depression, and other anxiety disorders.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can be caused or triggered by witnessing or being involved in any number of trauma-related events.

If you suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, you may also be in pain. You can be in pain without suffering.

Pain is a warning message from your body. The pain means something is happening that requires your attention.

Suffering can cause pain. You can create pain for yourself through your suffering.

Pain occurs in your body. Suffering happens in your brain.

You create suffering in your mind. If you have post-traumatic stress disorder, you suffer as you remember the traumatic event(s) of the past and imagine an equally unpleasant future.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may develop after a person is exposed to one or more traumatic events, such as sexual assault, serious injury, or the threat of death.

The diagnosis may be given when a group of symptoms, such as disturbing recurring flashbacks, avoidance or numbing of memories of the event, and hyper-arousal continue for more than a month after the traumatic event.

Most people who have experienced a traumatizing event will not develop PTSD.

Women are more likely to experience higher impact events and are also more likely to develop PTSD than men.
