While certain diseases can occasionally go unnoticed, others are sometimes visible only to trained eyes. In either scenario, a disease is a condition that, if untreated, can negatively impact your quality of life.

One such ailment that is discrete, difficult to diagnose, and sometimes undetectable is Trauma and Stress Disorders. But if you have Trauma, it's crucial to educate yourself about it and take the required steps to prevent its negative effects from affecting your life.

A stressful experience or a series of small stressful experiences can lead to the mental health struggles with trauma.  

However, it  is treatable in most cases, and educating yourself about the condition can go a long way in improving your life. Identification of the problem is the first step toward the solution. Some signs can be pretty obvious, while others may be hard to decipher. To help you better understand, let’s discuss some of the most common symptoms of unresolved trauma.

  • You may have intrusive thoughts: You may have recurring disturbing thoughts, flashbacks, or visualizations of the incident and think about it even when you don’t want to. You may also experience a high frequency of disturbing dreams and nightmares related to that incident.
  • Feeling as if you are reliving the incident: Even when you are completely safe, thoughts or mentions of the incident may make you feel extremely upset, and your body may psychologically and physically react as if you are going through the incident again.
  • You ignore anything that triggers memories of the incident: You try your best to ignore talking about the incident; you change the subject or feel uneasy when something reminds you of it. You may even start ignoring activities or places where the trauma happened.
  • You have a physical reaction to the memories of that incident: Other than psychological distress; you can experience increased heartbeat, elevated blood pressure, sweating, trouble breathing, muscle tension, or nausea when something reminds you of  what you've gone through.
