Feeling anxiety and shock after witnessing or experiencing a terrifying event is quite common, but long-lasting, persistent trauma associated with the event may be an indicator of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Symptoms can arise months or even years after the initial event. Call Dr. Naomi T. Jacobs to schedule a consultation regarding PTSD if traumatic past experiences have provoked symptoms such as:
- Recurrent, disturbing memories
- Flashbacks/reliving the event
- Avoidance of places, people and activities that remind you of the event
- Anger and irritability
- Trouble concentrating
- Substance abuse
There are many causes of PTSD and subsequently there are many ways to treat and remedy the condition. You don’t have to feel scared, angered and depressed anymore, call Dr. Naomi T. Jacobs for professional PTSD therapy in Ponte Vedra, Florida.
