Nearly 8 million Americans are struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), reports the Institute of Mental Health. Unlike some physical injuries, PTSD can be far more difficult to treat and overcome, as it symptoms may arise at any time, crippling a person without warning. What can be just as damaging as this is the fact that severe cases of PTSD can end up impacting a person’s:

  • Ability to earn a living
  • Close personal relationships
  • Overall quality of life.

Although many people may associate post-traumatic stress disorder with combat or being in the military, the fact is that anyone who endures some intense trauma or catastrophe – or even simply witnesses such a tragic event – can develop PTSD.

In fact, any of the following accidents or incidents commonly give rise to people developing post-traumatic stress disorder:

  • Car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents
  • Assaults or other acts of violence
  • Animal attacks
  • Falling accidents
  • Heavy machinery accidents
  • Workplace accidents.

PTSD Symptoms

What can be just as insidious as post-traumatic stress disorder is how this condition may arise. Specifically, in many cases, the symptoms of PTSD will creep up on people, developing possibly days or even weeks after the traumatic event, and cause them to suddenly start experiencing debilitating symptoms that may include (but are not limited to):

  • Sleeping problems, including difficulty falling asleep and/or intensely frightening nightmares
  • Flashbacks during waking hours
  • Extreme anxiety, tension and/or nervousness
  • Intense mood swings that may even give rise to bursts of anger or violence
  • Intense guilt
  • Depression
  • Numbness
  • Memory problems, potentially even difficulty remembering the traumatic incidence that triggered the PTSD.

In many cases, people suffering from PTSD will need to undergo a combination of treatments, such as therapy and the use of medications, to overcome this debilitating condition. However, it’s important to point out that PTSD, even when treated, can persist for months or even years.
