Yes, I believe you can have PTSD for years and not know it and I believe it can empact all areas of your life. When I experienced a trauma and went to counseling for it, we uncovered other traumas from my childhood and the counselor told me I've probably had PTSD from a very young age. It's never too late to get help, though. My counselor taught me some tools to cope with the intense feelings that are associated with PTSD.
Yes you can have PTSD and any mental illness for that matter for years and not know it. It's not like you're immediately informed of your condition when you develop any disorder. PTSD can also have some psychotic symptoms, they aren't just exclusive to things like schizophrenia.
