Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I am very sorry to hear about your girlfriend's history, I can understand why she would be suffering from this level of trauma. To answer your questions:
1. I cannot diagnose your girlfriend without a face to face evaluation, but there is no specific name for this besides Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The symptoms of PTSD can definitely vary from individual to individual and her compulsion to exercise could just be a coping mechanism for her to not be alone with her thoughts. But again I would only be speculating as I have never evaluated your girlfriend face to face. There may be other disorders present here that have been overshadowed by the PTSD, but that would be impossible to tell at this stage until the PTSD slowly resolves with treatment.
2. PTSD can definitely be treated using a combination of psychotherapy and/or medications, some patients do not like the use of medications, so psychoatherapy is the predominant treatment for those individuals. But as for how long the treatment can last is dependent on the severity of your girlfriend's symptoms and how she responds to the treatment. Some people respond very well and other are a bit more resistant. The average timeline for treatment from Childhood/Adolescent Trauma is usually around 9-18 months but like I said it may vary dependent on your girlfriend's symptoms and how she responds to treatment.
You are most welcome. I wish you and your girlfriend all the best :)
