What are the most common symptoms of PTSD?

PTSD symptoms fit into three broad groups:
* Re-experiencing of the trauma (flashbacks, nightmares, intrusive thoughts)
* Avoidance of reminders (people, places or any other reminders or triggers)
* Hypervigilance (always on alert, easily started, restless and can’t relax)
