After a traumatic event, it is normal to think, act, and feel differently than usual. But, if your symptoms last longer than a few months, are very upsetting, or disrupt your daily life, treatment may help. If thoughts and feelings about a trauma are bothering you (1) learn about post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and treatment; (2) fill out a PTSD questionnaire online, and (3) talk with your doctor. Learn about effective PTSD treatment options using the PTSD Treatment Decision Aid.
