Before we start reviewing the stress relief products, let's have a quick discussion about good stress, bad stress, short-term stress, and long-term stress.

Stress is the response to the demand created by the stressor. Stress can be good or bad depending upon the stressful situation and its impact on the overall performance of an individual. From overall performance, I mean emotional, behavioral, and psychological effect of stress on one's physical and mental health.

What happens when you get stressed?

When you encounter a stressful situation, your body goes into "fight" or "flight" mode. As a result, cortisol aka "stress hormone" is released in the body along with some other hormones li…

Car Accident Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Symptoms

Car accident post traumatic stress disorder symptoms

In the last article, we discussed the cause and treatment of PTSD. In this article, we will be discussing the symptoms that are related to car accident PTSD.

A car accident is very common in NOT only the developed economy but also the developing and underdeveloped economy.

Have you ever experienced a car accident?

Did you lose anyone in the car accident?

If Yes, then how long did it take you to overcome the trauma?

Were you on the driving seat at the time of the accident?

If Yes, then how confident was you driving after the incident?

Let's Begin...

                                                                      Reference Link

A research was conducted on the victims of car accidents. The above chart shows the details of the sample group and the parameters on which they are getting evaluated.

The next table shows the outcome of this research.

research on Car Accident Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Symptoms

The sample size for the research was 74 and the impact has been calculated for a time duration of 6 months.
The goal of the research was to examine the development of the PTSD among the car accident victims during a year time.

The findings of the research are as follows:

Acute stress symptoms were diagnosed for all the victims immediately after the accident. The severity was more intense for those who later on got diagnosed with PTSD.

The other important finding was that the stress symptoms get more intensified for PTSD patients and vice versa.

The three month time duration can be a good cut-off period for transition from an acute stress disorder to PTSD.

According to the National Center, over 100 billion dollars are spent every year to take care of the damage caused by auto accidents.

According to the study, the survivors of the motor vehicle accident suffer from acute stress disorder, anxiety or other mental disorder such as PTSD.

The American population consists of a large portion of individual travelers and commuters. As a result, almost 1 percent of the USA population becomes victims of the motor vehicle accidents every year.

The motor vehicle accidents are among the most common trauma an individual experiences every year. If we talk in terms of numbers then you will be SHOCKED.

Over 3 million are injured and the probabilities are that it will increase over the time.

A majority of motor vehicle survivors aren't diagnosed with PTSD. A substantial minority are diagnosed with acute anxiety disorders or in worst case PTSD. However, even a small fraction of 3 million Americans is a big number.

According To Mayo Clinic, some people are more prone to PTSD as compared to the others and the reasons are as follows:

  • Lack of social support system.
  • A family history of mental illness.
  • A job that exposes to trauma kinda of an event.
  • Previously suffering from acute stress disorder, anxiety etc.
Before we move further, Let's have a look at the handpicked articles.

In case you are a victim of a motor vehicle accident and you are experiencing the below symptoms even after one month after the accident then there is a high probability that in future you may develop PTSD.

  • Re-experiencing the flash through nightmares or flashbacks.
  • Severe anxiety.
  • Feeling of guilt or shame.
  • Not able to recall the details about the accident.
  • Feeling hopeless, low on energy etc.
                                                post traumatic stress disorder toolbox

I will recommend the EMDR TOOLBOX by JIM KNIPE. It will definitely help and support you to overcome PTSD.

Conclusion: I hope this article will help you to at least get an overview of the symptoms. It always good to contact psychiatrist even though a few of the above symptoms persist.
