What Causes PTSD?
PTSD occurs after a traumatic event or a significant stressor. It’s normal to experience an immediate panicked reaction to a brutal attack, combat injury or a natural disaster.
By contrast, PTSD is marked by a lasting emotional response. Symptoms of PTSD usually begin early, within three months of the traumatic incident, but may take months or years to surface.
Sometimes, an insignificant event reawakens forgotten or suppressed emotions. Combat veterans often struggle with buried emotions that lurk just below the edge of conscious memory.
