Scared and confused - post traumatic stress disorder

Patient

Doctor

A:   Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is characterized by intrusive thoughts, nightmares and flashbacks of past traumatic events, avoidance of reminders of trauma, hypervigilance, and sleep disturbance, all of which lead to considerable social, occupational, and interpersonal dysfunction.
Your symptoms of hearing voices is not a feature of PTSD and is often seen with schizophrenia or if you are taking any halucinogenic substance. I would definitely suggest that you consult a psychiatrist for further evaluation of your symptoms. I hope this answers your query, take care.
