Characteristics:


People with this condition will suffer symptoms from one month to several years and this will not allow them to perform the same actions and have the same routine as before. Trauma starts a new page, a new universe, because of the extreme pain and fear it created. The person’s life will be affected and, in many cases cannot function properly without help. 

Symptoms of PTSD usually appear over a period of 3 months after the traumatic event but can appear months or even years later. With severe trauma there is a significant change in the nervous system creating over-activation of the fight-or-flight response through sympathetic pathways.

 

PTSD can change the body’s response to stressful events. Usually after a traumatic event the body heals itself and stops production of stress-related hormones. With PTSD the autonomic systems is activated to a constant state of high stress. PTSD can occur at any age.
