Respected customer, thanks a lot for your input, and thanks again for visiting justanswer.com! A great place where you can find guidance and/or solution from real experts. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. Even I would get tense in this situation. PTSD is primarily a clinical diagnosis. Yes, you might be suffering from it. You need to see a psychiatrist. He will do a psychiatric evaluation and then he will see if you fulfill a special diagnostic criteria called DSM5. There is no blood test etc to diagnose this. Here is a link for your resourceful learning;
