Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a mental disorder characterized by stress, anxiety, nightmares, flashbacks, and irrational thoughts about the incident. It usually happens following a traumatic incident. It is advisable to consult with the doctor if the thoughts of an incident persist for more than a month and interfere with daily activities because earlier treatment prevents it from getting worse.
