PTSD can be caused by a lot of different traumas, but the symptoms can be different from person to person.
When I am having problems with ptsd, sometimes it can trigger a panic attack.
I never know when a panic attack is going to hit me, because sometimes I don’t realize there has been a trigger. Panic attacks can cause me to sweat, shake, get a headache, or even have chest pain. I have also had extreme episodes of panic that have caused me to completely faint. I saw a doctor when I was younger and the doctor told me that there wasn’t anything he could do about the panic attacks unless I wanted to go to a therapist. My mom didn’t want me to see a therapist and I didn’t start talking to someone until I was in my 20s. That doctor suggested trying medical marijuana to cope with the panic attacks and PTSD symptoms. I didn’t know a lot about marijuana at the time, but I was happy to get more information from a treatment facility and dispensary nearby. I got to go inside and meet with a specialist to discuss my medical problems and treatment and how marijuana could be an effective option for me. After I got more information about medical marijuana, I made the decision to try some gummies from a local dispensary. The gummies had 10 mg of thc. I probably didn’t need that much for the first dose, but it really did help when I was starting to feel anxiety and fear. I regularly dose with marijuana products to keep the fear and panic from controlling my daily life.
