For every 100 people who experience a traumatic event, up to eight of them will go on to develop PTSD, a serious and severe form of panic disorder. The sufferer, when triggered, will experience PTSD symptoms, including a rapid, irrational, all-encompassing fight-or-flight response to the stimuli. The stimuli can be a place, smell, sound, or person that reminds them of the traumatic event.
While most who undergo a traumatic experience will not develop PTSD, there are several risk and resiliency factors that put some at a higher-risk or lower risk of developing this disruptive and debilitating mental health condition.
Symptoms are usually triggered by a place, sight, sound, smell, or individual who reminds the PTSD sufferer of the traumatic event.
