Only a qualified doctor or therapist can diagnose a condition like PTSD.

You would need to speak with a mental health professional who specializes in such issues. Anyone can speculate and make up stuff for you, telling you what you want to hear, but if you want to do it right and accurately, you need a professional.

The way to the answers you seek is kind of trecherous. If you are a military type person the doctors that examine you in the military and/or VA facility must hear specific key phrases, as if they are using a flow chart to determine if you are actually suffer from PTSD. It's not their fault; it's just the system. Also if one doctor tells you you're not affected another might say that you are, so get a second opinion or three. THIS IS IMPORTANT ! Google the word and research different support groups so that you can better explain what you are experiencing to the doctors.

Be well.
