A common mental health condition in Maryland is Post-traumatic stress disorder, abbreviated PTSD. It is most commonly seen in veterans who have been in combat. PTSD is also seen in those who have been seriously injured due to auto accidents, tractor trailer crashes, work accidents and medical malpractice. PTSD is also seen it those who witnessed a traumatic event. They do not necessarily have been directly involved. Symptoms, which can be triggered by almost anything at anytime, can include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. Most people who go through traumatic events may have temporary difficulty adjusting and coping, but with time and good self-care, they usually get better. If the symptoms get worse, last for months or even years, and interfere with your day-to-day functioning, you may have PTSD. Getting effective treatment after PTSD symptoms develop can be critical to reduce symptoms and improve function. Also, having PTSD may entitle you to benefits and financial compensation depending on the etiology or origin of your PTSD.
