I've been diagnosed with PTSD after an accident I was in several years ago. I experienced anxiety for several months after the accident, then it went away with the help of an Zoloft. Now, it's come back and I've been shaking with headaches and adrenaline surges for the past 2 months. I can't sleep without ambien. I can't watch TV without shaking...the sound is messing me up. Bright lights mess me up, too....and ibuprofen isn't touching these headaches. The Dr. keeps increasing my antidepressant, but it's not helping. I'm also taking therapy and so far, it's not helping. I'm losing hope....why does this continue on....is there no cure? Should I be talking to a specialist instead of a GP? Should I try a different antidepressant?
