Today we are here to figure out why is it that past events are the triggers that cause Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is an anxiety disorder that some people get after seeing or undergoing a dangerous event. There are various symptoms that begin to show or actions that can give a clear answer whether one may be diagnosed with this disorder. One of the many problems is that no age range is safe from suffering PTSD. One must ask themselves what set of events happened at that time to cause this disaster to occur and how did these events change the lives of these occupants’ forever. By the end of this paper, we will have our results and understanding why this affects many people. We can also figure out if there is a cure for this anxiety disorder or a new way to sedate it. PTSD can be triggered in any age range.
Firstly, there are various symptoms throughout time that have given a clear indication that PTSD is close to arriving or has already started in adults. One of the common ways that it may occur is through dreams.

Stated by Smita Srivastava, MD at Tufts Medical Center, “the rate of PTSD is as high as 95-100 percent in children who witnessed domestic violence, the death of a parents, or who have been kidnapped”. With such a high percentage being that young experiencing such a traumatic event can ruin the child’s childhood and has the ability to create more problems for the future. Children have a greater risk of experiencing these events much more in their lifetime because they are younger and there are occurrences that cannot be forgotten.
Similarly, adults have their own glitches to deal with when PTSD symptoms start to occur. One that is very common among adults mostly men is called sleep apnea, by definition is an involuntary cessation of breathing that occurs while the patient is asleep. American Sleep Apnea Association (ASAA) stated that, “Untreated sleep apnea may be responsible for job impairment and motor vehicle crashes caused by falling asleep, occasionally waking up with a choking or gasping sensation, and decrease interest in sex”.
