About Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
Talk to your doctor about the traumatic event and your feelings. Describe any scary memories, depression, trouble sleeping, or anger. Let them know if these problems keep you from doing everyday things and living your life.
In addition, you may want to ask the following questions:
- Could I possibly have some other illness?
- Can I have a physical exam to be sure?
- Have you helped people with PTSD?
- If not, can you refer me to a doctor or counselor who has experience treating PTSD?
