Find NIH-funded studies currently recruiting participants with PTSD by using ClinicalTrials.gov (search: PTSD). The patient is told what he or she is likely to expect in the days, weeks and months ahead, so that those reactions can be anticipated and not experienced as a loss of control or feeling "crazy," feelings which may further traumatize the victim, by temporarily increasing his/her anxiety and delaying recovery. These symptoms often continue for years after the trauma or, in some cases, may ease and return later in life if another event triggers memories of the trauma. (In fact, anniversaries of the event can often cause a flood of emotions and bad memories.) PTSD also can come on as a sudden, short-term response (called acute stress disorder) to an event and can last many days or up to one month.
