How common is PTSD?

Answered by: Dr. Peter Lambrou

I can't seem to get motivated to do many things. I feel the desire to accomplish the tasks, but when I get home, I feel worn out mentally and can't seem to find the energy to do it. Physically I seem to be okay, mentally I am not. I know if I complete these tasks the monetary reward will be enormous... however that still doesn't seem to be that much of a motivator. What can I do?

What is the link between depression and physical pain? And can you get rid of the physical pain while you are dealing with the depression? Or will the pain remain until depression is resolved?

I have experienced a lot of trauma in my life and I have just started reaching out for help. My problem is that I am afraid to open up to others and really talk about what I experienced. I feel like I need to keep up this macho image, but inside I am torn up. I hate to admit that I am having any problems. I have reviewed suggestions online about how to deal with difficult memories and I see over and over that it is helpful to talk about your experience with others. Can you explain why this is helpful? I just don't want to open up to people I don't know. How could talking and reliving my past make it any better?

I was just told by my doctor that I had IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Can someone help me understand a little about what is IBS? Is there any way to treat it, besides medication?

I have recently been battling with depression and can manage it most days. But recently, when I get into large group settings, I find that I start to feel physically awful. I get sweaty and shaky and dizzy...I actually feel physically sick. I have to go find a quiet, cool place for these feelings to subside. My friend said it could be anxiety attacks, but I don't recollect ever having anxiety attacks. Do these symptoms fit anxiety?

My husband is a police detective, and in the last three months, he has been involved in investigating three brutal murders. The things he sees and deals with all day long are gruesome and cruel and I have noticed some changes in him lately. What are some of the symptoms that I should watch out for if I believe he may be suffering from PTSD?
