Stress induced alopecia??

I recently went through some trauma and noticed a few bald spots starting to occur.

The first one is about 4cm wide and on the right side of my head, and I discovered it about 4 months after said traumatic incident.
I've since found 4 more bald patches, not as big as the first but still, I can feel and see them if my hair is up.
I'm only 24 and up until about 18 months ago my hair has always been very thick and strong.
Is there ANYTHING I can do to stop this getting worse???
It's really stressing me out which I think is making it worse.. I hate washing my hair now because I don't want to pull anymore out.
