  What are the symptoms of PTSD?

Symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms can cause significant problems at home, work or other important areas of life.

For many, symptoms can be triggered by a loud noise, a particular image or a distinct smell that reminds them of the traumatic event; for others, symptoms may appear, seemingly, out of the blue.

Common symptoms of PTSD include:

  • Feelings of stress or fear when reminded of the trauma
  • Re-living the event in the form of a flashback
  • Nightmares of the event or other fears
  • Avoidance of situations that are associated with the trauma
  • Feeling detached or emotionally numb
  • Difficulty concentrating and being easily startled
  • Out-of-control anger or violence
  • Constantly on alert for danger (hypervigilance)
