aya 19 yearsrnrnI want to ask, 2 days ago I saw with my own eyes, my sister fell off the motorcycle. And because I was behind my sister’s motorbike, so I saw straight away. My sister’s head leaked and my sister fainted before being taken to the hospital, and even then my mind was confused, afraid that my sister would not wake up again/died. But thank God when my sister was brought to the emergency room she came to her senses.rnrnAnd the problem is, why am I always thinking/remembering the incident when my sister fell and fainted?rnThen every time I remember that incident, my head hits me I have pain and heartburn until my chest feels like it’s tight and it’s hard to breathe?rnEven I feel like I’m afraid to die too, doctor 🙁 I’m afraid it will happen to me and I’m afraid it will happen again.rnWhy, doctor? Thank you in advance

Thank you for your question


The condition you are experiencing can be caused because you experienced deep trauma after you saw your sister had a fairly severe accident. This is enough to make an impression that causes excessive anxiety in you. This condition in medical language can also be referred to as PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) or post-traumatic stress disorder, where the anxiety that arises will cause a person to be unable to forget or otherwise not want to remember the traumatic experience, and to think negatively about themselves and the world around them. . In addition, this anxiety will cause various conditions such as nightmares, feeling isolated, annoyed, having feelings of guilt, difficulty concentrating, and difficulty sleeping or insomnia. It can also cause various physical symptoms, such as chest palpitations, tremors or shaking, chest tightness or heartburn accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Indeed, this kind of condition must be evaluated specifically by a psychiatrist or psychiatrist, especially if you often feel excessive fear of death. Later the doctor will make sure the condition you are experiencing is a form of mental disorder or not. Because excessive anxiety like this can cause social problems and impaired your productivity, then this condition must be treated. What you should understand, therapy in this condition is related to the use of behavioral therapy and therapy with drugs if needed (anti-anxiety drugs). This kind of trauma can cause you to experience depression and even more severe anxiety. What you have to keep in mind is that we cannot predict what events will happen in our lives (including accidents or death). The thing you can do is be careful in carrying out your daily activities, but not overdo it either. Also, make sure you seek help if you can't handle this kind of problem on your own, at least find someone else you can talk to and share ideas with.


Hope this answer helps you.
