Signs of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

People who have PTSD often display a range of symptoms, though they may vary depending on the individual and the nature of the traumatic event they have experienced.

Recognizing these signs is the first step toward seeking appropriate help:

  • Intrusive memories – Such memories may include recurrent, unwanted, distressing memories of the traumatic event or experience, severe emotional distress, or physical reactions to anything that reminds them of the traumatic experience.
  • Avoidance – Individuals may avoid places, activities, or people that remind them of the traumatic event or avoid talking or thinking about the event.
  • Negative changes in thinking and mood –This may manifest as negative thoughts about oneself or the world, feelings of hopelessness, memory problems, difficulty maintaining close relationships, or even a lack of interest in previously enjoyed activities.
  • Changes in physical and emotional reactions – This can involve being easily startled, constantly on guard, struggling with sleep or concentration, or engaging in self-destructive behaviors such as excessive drinking or reckless driving.

If you or a loved one exhibits any of these symptoms, it may be a sign of PTSD, and we strongly encourage you to reach out to a professional, such as our team at Evoke Wellness at Chicago, for support and guidance.

Types of Trauma Disorders

There are several types of trauma disorders, each with unique characteristics and symptoms:

Acute Stress Disorder (ASD)

Acute stress disorder is a response to a traumatic event with symptoms similar to PTSD. Still, they occur immediately after the event and last a shorter duration (usually less than a month). Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, and feelings of disconnection or numbness.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

PTSD occurs when an individual continues to experience profound psychological distress for a prolonged period (typically more than a month) after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. The symptoms can disrupt daily life and functioning.

Adjustment Disorders

Adjustment disorders are emotional responses to a significant change or stressor in a person’s life, which may include divorce, job loss, a major move, or the death of a loved one. Symptoms often include feelings of anxiety, depression, and changes in behavior.

Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD)

Reactive attachment disorder is usually observed in children who have not formed healthy attachments with their caregivers, often due to severe early neglect or abuse. Symptoms may include withdrawn behavior, difficulty in social interaction, and failure to seek or respond to comfort when distressed.

Understanding these types of trauma disorders is essential in determining the best course of action for treatment.
