Delayed-Onset PTSD: Signs and Symptoms

This little-known subtype of PTSD is the subject of recent research. Scientists have found that nearly one in four PTSD diagnoses may actually be delayed onset. So, what is delayed-onset PTSD, and why does it occur?

The technical definition of this condition is that a person does not develop a diagnosable post-traumatic stress disorder until at least six months after exposure to a traumatic event. Sometimes, it may take years for a person to begin displaying a trauma response

Symptoms of this PTSD subtype are…

  • Vivid recollections, flashbacks, and nightmares
  • Poor sleep (unable to fall or stay asleep)
  • Experiencing intense physical sensations
  • Panic attacks, dizziness, and chest pain
  • Significant changes in mood or behavior
  • Feeling guilty or blaming oneself for the incident
  • Memory loss surrounding the event
  • Being easily startled or feeling jumpy (hypervigilance)
  • Irritability, anxiety, and depression
  • Withdrawing socially (isolation)
  • Emotional detachment (feeling numb)
  • Avoiding reminders of the event
  • Difficulty concentrating
