PTSD Nightmares

Anyone can have PTSD nightmares following an auto accident. Once thought to be just a result of combat and affecting only soldiers, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has been found to affect anybody following a traumatic experience. One of the most common triggers for PTSD is a motor vehicle accident.

Symptoms can be fear, anxiety, sleeplessness and other symptoms of stress. Some people experience headaches, stomach pain and muscle tension as part of their PTSD nightmares.

Have you experienced PTSD after being involved in an auto accident? Did you recognize it as such? How did it manifest; what symptoms did you have? How did it affect your life? Did you have to seek professional help? How long did the PTSD last? Did you get over it, and how?
