What Is PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

When an individual is in a dangerous situation, it is perfectly normal for them to feel scared. This is because fear is the body's natural response in an attempt to protect itself from a potentially dangerous situation. PTSD is a mental illness that alters the way a person's body and mind responds to danger. Typically, an individual who experiences post traumatic stress is prone to high levels of stress, depression, and anxiety even when they are not really in any sort of danger. Many Soldiers Suffer From PTSD This is a mental health condition that occurs after a person has experienced a terrifying and traumatic situation. Typically this is a situation that will have caused the individual to endure mental or physical pain/harm. While it was war veterans that brought this condition into the spotlight they are not the only individuals who suffer from PTSD. In fact, incidents including mugging, rape, being kidnapped, being tortured, or being held captive are other examples of situations that could lead to PTSD. What Causes PTSD? Naturally, doctors are still trying to learn more about post traumatic stress disorder and what causes it to occur. While there is no concrete evidence at this time some doctors believe that there is a link between genes and PTSD. Doctors also believe several inefficiencies play a role in the development of this mental condition. For example, research shows that individuals who lack a protein called Stathmin or a chemical in the brain called GRP are more prone to developing this condition. There is no age, gender, or race requirement when it comes to who can develop this condition or who cannot. The truth is that absolutely anyone regardless of their personal details can develop this condition. If you have ever been in a traumatic or intense situation and are feeling more stress or paranoid than more, it may be a good idea to seek medical advice or assistance. An individual who suffers from PSTD did not necessarily have to encounter or experience a dangerous situation. Some people develop the condition as a sympathetic natural reaction when a friend or family members goes through a traumatic experience. Furthermore, if a family member or friend suddenly passes away this can also cause an individual to develop post traumatic stress. How To Treat PTSD The main treatment options for individuals with this condition include psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, medication, or a combination of the three. The most important thing to keep in mind is that everyone is different and what treatment may have worked well for someone else may not work at all for you. For a lot of obvious reasons it is important that anyone with this condition seeks the assistance of a medical expert. Ideally they should also be seeking the help of a medical provider who has experience dealing with patients who have the condition.
