Anxiety Symptoms With Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Symptoms of PTSD can range from constantly reliving the event to a general emotional numbing. Other common anxiety symptoms include:

  • Exaggerated startle reactions
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Nightmares

People with PTSD typically avoid situations that remind them of the traumatic event because they provoke intense distress or even panic attacks.
