A Guide on PTSD

Understanding PTSD

PTSD, also called shell shock or battle fatigue syndrome is a serious medical condition that results from an experience or witness to some traumatic or terrifying life event.

PTSD Symptoms

Symptoms of PTSD most frequently begin within 3 months of the event. In some cases, however, they begin until a few years later. The intensity and duration of the illness vary. Some people recover within 6 months, while others take longer to come out of it.

Symptoms of PTSD can be divided into four categories, including:

Reliving: People with PTSD repeatedly relive the unpleasant and prolonged experience through thoughts and memories of the trauma. These may include hallucinations, nightmares, and flashbacks. 

Avoiding: The person may avoid people, places, thoughts, or situations which will remind them of the trauma. This can cause feelings of detachment, estrangement, and isolation from family and friends, also as a loss of interest in activities that the person once enjoyed.

Increased arousal: These include excessive emotions; problems concerning others, including feeling or showing affection; difficulty falling or staying asleep; irritability; outbursts of anger; difficulty concentrating; and being “jumpy” or easily startled. The person can also suffer some physical symptoms. Some include increased vital signs and pulse,  muscle tension, rapid breathing, nausea, and diarrhea.

Negative cognitions and mood: This refers to thoughts and feelings associated with blame, estrangement, and memories of the traumatic event.

Young children suffering from trauma may have slow and gradual development in areas like toilet training, motor skills, and language as compared to other children with healthy minds. The intensity of PTSD symptoms may vary. You’ll have more symptoms once you feel stress generally, or once you encounter a selected reminder about what happened.

PTSD Causes

Everyone reacts to traumatic events differently. Everyone is exclusive in their ability to manage fear, stress, and therefore the threat posed by a traumatic event or situation. For that reason, not everyone who features a trauma will develop PTSD. Also, the sort of help and support an individual receives from friends, relations, and professionals following the trauma may impact the event of PTSD or the severity of symptoms.PTSD was first delivered to the eye of the medical profession by war veterans; hence the names combat fatigue and battle fatigue syndrome. 

However, anyone who has had a traumatic event can land into trauma. People that were abused as children or who are repeatedly exposed to life-threatening situations are in danger of developing PTSD. Victims of trauma associated with physical and sexual abuse face the best risk for trauma.

You may be more likely to develop PTSD after a traumatic event if you’ve got a history of other psychological state problems, have blood relatives with psychological state problems, or have a history of alcohol abuse.

PTSD Complications

PTSD can cause and have certain problems in every aspect of your life, including your job, your relationships, your health, and your everyday activities. It’s going to also cause you to more likely to develop other psychological state problems, such as:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Drug or alcohol abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Suicidal thoughts and actions

PTSD Diagnosis

PTSD isn’t diagnosed until a minimum of 1 month has passed since the traumatic event happened. If symptoms of PTSD are present, the doctor will begin an evaluation by performing an entire medical record and physical exam. Although there are no particular lab tests to specifically diagnose PTSD, the doctor may use various tests to rule out physical illness because of the explanation for the symptoms. If no physical illness is found, you’ll be mentioned a psychiatrist, psychologist, or other psychological states professional who is specially trained to diagnose and treat mental illnesses. Psychiatrists and psychologists use specially designed interview and assessment tools to gauge an individual for the presence of PTSD or other psychiatric conditions. The doctors’ diagnoses of PTSD are based on reported symptoms, including any problems with functioning caused by the symptoms. The doctor then comes to a conclusion if the symptoms and degree of dysfunction indicate PTSD. PTSD is diagnosed if the person has symptoms of PTSD lasting for at least one month.

PTSD Treatment 

The goal of PTSD treatment is to slow down the emotional and physical symptoms, enhance daily functioning, and assist the person in better manage with the event that triggered the disorder. Treatment for PTSD may involve psychotherapy (a sort of counseling), medication, or both.

Medication

Doctors might prescribe  antidepressant medications to treat PTSD — and to regulate the emotions of hysteria and its associated symptoms — including:

  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like citalopram (Celexa), fluvoxamine (Luvox), paroxetine (Paxil), fluoxetine (Prozac), and sertraline (Zoloft)
  • Tricyclic antidepressants like amitriptyline (Elavil) and isocarboxazid (Doxepin)
  • Mood stabilizers like divalproex (Depakote) and lamotrigine (Lamictal)
  • Atypical antipsychotics like aripiprazole (Abilify) and quetiapine (Seroquel )

Certain vital sign medicines also are sometimes wont to control particular symptoms:

  • Prazosin for nightmares
  • Clonidine (Catapres) for sleep
  • Propranolol (Inderal) to assist minimize the formation of traumatic memories

Experts discourage the utilization of tranquilizers like lorazepam (Ativan) or clonazepam (Klonopin) for PTSD because studies haven’t shown them to be helpful, plus they carry a risk for physical dependence or addiction.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy for PTSD involves helping the person learn how to manage symptoms and avail ways of coping. Therapy also aims to show the person and their family about the disorder, and help the person run through the fears related to the traumatic event. a spread of psychotherapy approaches is wont to treat people with PTSD, including:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy, which involves learning to acknowledge and alter thought patterns that cause troublesome emotions, feelings, and behavior.
  • Prolonged desensitization technique, a kind of behavioral therapy that involves helping the person relive the traumatic event, or exposing the person to things or situations that cause anxiety. this is often wiped out a well-controlled and safe environment. Over time, the desensitization technique helps the person confront the fear and gradually become easier with situations that are frightening and cause anxiety. This has been very successful at treating PTSD.
  • Psychodynamic therapy focuses on helping the person examine personal values and therefore the emotional conflicts caused by the traumatic event.
  • Family therapy could also be useful because the behavior of the person with PTSD can have an effect on other relations.
  • Group therapy can be helpful because allowing the person to share thoughts, fears, and feelings with people who have experienced traumatic events will give him/her a better space to relieve. 
  • Eye Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) may be a complex sort of psychotherapy that was initially designed to alleviate distress related to traumatic memories and is now also wont to treat phobias.

PTSD Prevention

Some studies suggest that early intervention with people that had a trauma may reduce the number of symptoms of PTSD or prevent it all at once.

PTSD can develop at any age, including childhood. Women are more likely to develop PTSD than men. This may be due to the fact that women are more likely to be victims of domestic violence, abuse, and rape.

PTSD Outlook

Recovery from PTSD is a gradual and ongoing process. Symptoms of PTSD seldom disappear completely, but treatment can help people learn to manage it more effectively. Treatment can lead to fewer and less intense symptoms, as well as a greater ability to manage feelings related to the trauma.

Research is ongoing into the factors that lead to PTSD and into finding new treatments.
