LUBBOCK, TX -- Post Traumatic Stress is a normal reaction to a traumatic event but this normal reaction can turn into a disorder if left untreated.
The four basic types of symptoms for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder are:
- Reliving the event (or re-experiencing symptoms)
- Avoiding situations that remind you of the event
- Feeling numb
- Feeling "keyed-up" or hyper arousal
