Overcome the effects of PTSD.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a type of psychiatric disorder that can occur after you experience or witness a traumatic event, such as war, a serious accident, sexual violence, a major injury, or a natural disaster. If you have PTSD, you may have disturbing, intense feelings and thoughts related to the experience that keep reoccurring for days, weeks, months, or even years after the end of the event. You may feel fear, anger, and sadness, or relive the event through nightmares or flashbacks. Many also report that they feel estranged or detached from other people in their lives.
One major symptom of PTSD is that you may try to avoid people or situations that remind you of the traumatic event. If you do experience a situation reminiscent of the trauma, you may have a strong, negative reaction. For example, something as ordinary as an accidental touch or loud noise could trigger your symptoms.
If you live with PTSD, you know firsthand how disrupting this disorder can be to your daily life. Dr. James Campbell helps patients struggling with the impact of PTSD in Davie, Florida, and he is ready and willing to help you work through this trauma and start to heal, no matter how long it has been since the traumatic event.
