My concern is that this time the symptoms are worse than usual with no apparent trigger. The fact that it's lasting longer & you have other, new symptoms (burning eyes & throat, headache, taste in mouth) makes me concerned that this might be unrelated to the PTSD.
It's certainly possible that this is the PTSD which is currently worse for some unknown reason. Can you think of anything that has happened recently, like stress
, that could have triggered a relapse of the PTSD symptoms?
If not, I think seeing a doctor soon would be the best idea. If you can't get in to see your family doctor, I would go to a minor care or ER to get a physical exam & possible some bloodwork and or radiology scans.
If there has been a recent trigger for PTSD, you could be more conservative & just give it some more time.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more information. Good luck & take care.
