Each person handles a traumatic experience differently: some may respond immediately, others much later with symptoms such as severe anxiety, depression or numbness. Symptoms of flashbacks, nightmares, intrusive thoughts, and hyper-arousal that still exist several weeks after a traumatic event may indicate a person is suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and it is important that treatment is sought.
