Trauma Induced Anxiety – PTSD
Lexington PTSD Attorneys Fight for Your Future
If you were involved in any type of accident where you were seriously injured, you probably experienced a great deal of physical pain. Many physical injuries, heal fully or almost fully with treatment and time. However, complete recovery from some physical injuries does not come for quite some time, if ever. With these injuries, an accident victim may experience persistent pain or discomfort, or even a permanent disability. Like some of the physical effects of your injury, it is possible that the psychological impact of your traumatic experience can have deep and long-lasting effects.
When a survivor of any type of traumatic accident develops an anxiety disorder or begins to have panic attacks after the accident, it can affect the quality of their life dramatically. Trauma-induced anxiety is a type of emotional injury, and it should be taken seriously. If you feel as though you may be affected by trauma-induced anxiety, talk with your doctor about it if you have not done so already. Getting help with your trauma-induced anxiety is not only essential for your health and well-being; it may enable you to include trauma-induced anxiety in your claim for damages resulting from your accident.

Symptoms of Trauma-Induced Anxiety
Any type of traumatic experience can cause anxiety and panic attacks. For some trauma victims, the intense feelings associated with their memories of the accident subside and they begin to feel like themselves again after a while. For other trauma victims, the anxiety and panic attacks persist and they interfere with the activities of everyday life.
Some signs of trauma-induced anxiety include the following:
- Heart Palpitations
- Shortness of breath
Many of these symptoms are accompanied by the overwhelming need to avoid the activity associated with the trauma or the location where the trauma occurred. Panic attacks are another sign of trauma-induced anxiety. During a panic attack, a person experiences sudden and intense waves of fear and physical symptoms which are often accompanied by a feeling that they are going crazy or even dying.

Long-term Effects of PTSD
Trauma-induced anxiety can drastically affect the ability of those who experience it to go about their daily lives the way that they did before their accidents. For example, automobile accident victims with trauma-induced anxiety may develop an intense fear of driving or riding in a car. That fear could prevent them from driving to work, which could make it very hard for them to find and keep a job. When trauma-induced anxiety prevents an accident victim from participating in things that were previously part of their everyday life, the result, unfortunately, is often more stress and anxiety.
