Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) is a brief, intense anxiety condition occurring within a month of a traumatic event. Symptoms include flashbacks, nightmares, and avoidance behaviors.
Symptoms of Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) typically emerge within three days to four weeks following a traumatic event. Common symptoms include intrusive memories or distressing dreams related to the trauma, flashbacks, avoidance of reminders associated with the trauma, negative mood changes, heightened arousal (e.g., irritability, difficulty concentrating), and dissociation. Individuals may also experience changes in their perception of the world and themselves. It's important to note that while these symptoms are intense and distressing, they are time-limited and, if they persist beyond the initial period, may indicate the development of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Seeking professional help for timely intervention is crucial in managing ASD symptoms effectively.
