10 Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Symptoms

Symptom #2: Extreme Reactions To Memories Of The Event

Another symptom of PTSD, that is closely associated with flashbacks, is having extreme reactions to reminders of the traumatic situation. These can include fast heart beat, quick breath, nausea, tension, stress, vomiting, and profuse sweating.

These are known as psychosomatic symptoms because they occur in the body as a result of the way the mind is behaving. These symptoms can cause intense stress, both physically and mentally, if the individual is made to be reminded of the situation. They can also lead into flashbacks if the PTSD patient lacks the proper coping mechanisms.
