Signs & Symptoms of PTSD

The signs of PTSD are quite varied and will differ from case to case. However, the most general signs include fear-induced thoughts, nightmares (or bad dreams) and flashbacks of a troubling experience.

There are avoidance symptoms too; such as forgetting certain aspects of the experience, including people, places or objects  and hyper arousal symptoms are quite common too such as tenseness, anxiety and trouble sleeping at night.

It’s important to note that it is in fact normal to experience these symptoms after a bad experience, but when they’re regular, extreme and lasting more than just a few weeks, it may be a sign of PTSD.
