This is my first post in this community. I was just wondering if I could have PTSD. Long story short I was in chronic pain for years and had several operations and then I finally had a hysterectomy aged 27 which ended my pain. I thought I would feel so happy afterwards but I've had so many mental health problems since the hysterectomy. I've had CBT for anxiety and depression but with little success. I have flashbacks of being in pain every time anything in my body hurts and gp surgeries and hospitals set off my panic attacks. I wake up crying from nightmares most nights.
I don't know much about PTSD so forgive me if I'm barking up the wrong tree!
