Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I understand that you are worried about your situation, mainly because the symptoms seem very annoying and make it difficult for you to study. Visiting a psychiatrist doesn't mean you are crazy. Your trying to get help shows that you are mentally well enough to realize that there is a problem that needs to be addressed. A psychiatrist or mental health specialist can help you analyze what problem you are experiencing and how you can treat it. As a doctor, psychiatrists are also sworn in not to divulge your secrets as a patient. You can tell more freely about the problems you experience. Your age who has reached 17 years also makes you legally considered an adult, meaning that you are allowed to seek treatment without being accompanied by your parents or other adults, so you don't have to tell anyone about your medication.
The symptoms you mentioned may be caused by panic attack disorder, anxiety disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder. An earthquake that you have experienced is very likely to make you feel the symptoms you mention. Earthquakes can indeed cause great fear. Our own bodies will feel threatened without us knowing it because of the earthquake. The feeling of being threatened with death can cause psychological problems for us. Disturbance due to a threatening event is not only experienced by yourself, many people have experienced disturbance like you due to the incident, or even worse. It is estimated that about a third of all who have experienced an earthquake will experience a disturbance like you. However, we need to manage these disturbances and handle them properly so as not to interfere with our daily lives. Psychiatrists will help us manage the fear and anxiety in us through various therapies. The main therapy of a psychiatrist is not based solely on drugs. Medication only helps us at the beginning of therapy so that the symptoms we feel don't bother us. In the future, we ourselves will be strengthened in our mental health so that we can face and manage problems well in the future.
Our main goal is that your mental health will improve and you can return to living your daily life optimally. If your mental health is getting better, of course you will be able to rest better and not easily think about these problems. To achieve our goals together, you should see the closest psychiatrist. When you see a psychiatrist, it's best to give you a detailed account of what happened to you and how you are feeling now. A psychiatrist will help you deal with the problem you are having with therapy and administering medication if necessary. You don't have to tell anyone about the therapy you are going to undergo. Hopefully, with the therapy you will undergo, you will become a stronger and stronger person.
That's my explanation. I hope this helps.
