Question by karen: What is the difference between acute stress disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder?

Best answer:

Answer by wishnuwelltoo
By definition, acute stress disorder is the result of a traumatic event in which the person experiences or witnesses an event that causes the victim/witness to experience extreme, disturbing or unexpected fear, stress, (and sometimes pain) and that involves or threatens serious injury, perceived serious injury (usually to someone else), or death. Acute stress reaction is a variation of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and is the mind’s and body’s response to feelings (both perceived and real) of intense helplessness.

PTSD is a less frequent and more enduring consequence of psychological trauma than the more frequently seen acute stress response. PTSD has also been recognized in the past as railway spine, stress syndrome, shell shock, battle fatigue, traumatic war neurosis, or post-traumatic stress syndrome.

Question by MarlaSinger: Could this cause post traumatic stress disorder?
I am 29 (female), and 2 years ago my stepfather and I got in a disagreement. He hit me in the face, causing me to fall to the ground and my nose was bleeding. He hit me occasionally when I was younger too, and this brought back a lot of bad memories.

I have certain symptoms of PTSD, and when I think about the incident it makes me upset and sometimes cry, even 2 years later.
