Signs of post traumatic stress disorder after a pedestrian crash

It's very normal to feel shocked, surprised and shaken after a pedestrian accident. You and others may have been seriously injured; someone may have been killed. That does not mean you have post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

However, PTSD is caused by all kinds of car accidents. Many people never have anything happen to them that is as traumatic as a serious crash. PTSD is a very real medical disorder that needs proper treatment and can be hard to manage and overcome.

If you're wondering if you have it, watch out for these signs:

  • The feelings are overwhelming.
  • The issues are getting worse, not better.
  • You think differently, perhaps constantly worrying.
  • You feel so bad that you start to act differently. For instance, maybe you can't ever walk down that road again and begin searching for alternative routes. Perhaps you get so nervous around cars that you start shaking.
  • You are irritable all the time and get angry more easily than you did before.
  • You don't want to get medical help. Your physical injuries have healed, but other issues continue.
  • You can't sleep and have consistent nightmares.
  • You have flashbacks of the crash or can't stop dwelling on the memories.

It is important to note that PTSD impacts everyone differently, so you may have it even if you don't see these specific signs. However, they still give you a good place to start and help to show how PTSD is far different than normal stress or concern after an accident.
