    Accident claims in Portsmouth


    What are the symptoms of PTSD and how can you make accident claims after an accident?

    The symptoms of PTSD are wide-ranging and can affect different people in different ways. Most people will find that they suffer completely different symptoms in a different order from someone else that has PTSD which is why it can be difficult to understand that this is what you are suffering from in the first instance.

    It can often take a visit to your doctor and a talk with a psychologist to be sure that you are suffering from the disorder, and in order to get the right treatment so that you can get back to normal. If you suspect that you are suffering from PTSD after any traumatic event or accident, here are some of the symptoms you should be looking out for.

    • Re-experiencing. One of the main symptoms of PTSD is re-experiencing the event as it happened. You may find that certain details of the event replay in your mind over and over again, rather than the entire experience. Or you may relive it as it happened whilst you are trying to concentrate on other tasks.
    • Avoiding the event. People suffering from PTSD may go in the other direction from constantly reliving the event, and instead start to avoid anything which reminds them of what happened, as well as not allowing themselves to think about it.
    • Hyperarousal. This basically boils down to feeling constantly ‘on’ and is a common complaint with PTSD. This means that you will be on edge, primed for a fight or flight response, even if you are just relaxing at home or hanging out with friends. People suffering from hyperarousal will often be edgy and angry, prone to emotional outbursts and unable to sleep.
    • Drug and alcohol abuse. Those suffering from PTSD will usually be doing what they can to avoid their feelings, and drug and alcohol abuse is a very typical way of doing this.
