How to Know if It’s PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a complex mental health condition that can arise from a variety of causes. PTSD causes distressing symptoms that damage your quality of life, including insomnia, nightmares, flashbacks, anxiety, and depression.

US Army veteran and board-certified anesthesiologist Dr. Bryant S. Edwards understands PTSD at a deep level. Dr. Edwards provides evaluation and support for new and existing patients with PTSD from his clinic Iconic Infusions, PLLC in Briarwood Hills, Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Could your mental health symptoms be a result of PTSD? Here’s what Dr. Edwards looks at in evaluating potential PTSD cases, and more information about the effective treatment options available to you through Iconic Infusions, PLLC.

Signs and symptoms of PTSD

PTSD develops after you go through a traumatic experience. You could have PTSD as a result of military service, domestic violence or abuse, a car crash or other accident, or other traumatic events in your life. PTSD can affect you long after the traumatic event itself, disrupting your ongoing life.

The symptoms of PTSD can vary widely from person to person. It can be challenging, sometimes, to know what you’re dealing with. You could benefit from being evaluated for PTSD if you suffer from symptoms, including:

PTSD doesn’t typically improve without treatment. You need care and support to reclaim your life from PTSD.
