there's a lot of good help here, try the 'search' facilty at the top of the page to access some of the old topics.
There might be something of help in the many articles here at MS.

http://www.malesurvivor.org/Professionals/Articles/index.htm

Also these sites have a wealth of specialist information -

Sidran
http://www.sidran.org/

National Centre for PTSD
http://www.ncptsd.org/

It's not an easy thing to deal with, take care.

Lisa,

I do not know I can offer you so much information. I have difference, between just panic in general, and actual flashbacks. They are different to me in the symptoms of them, and the intensity. Panic, I can 'ground' some. Call a friend, or do something as distraction, and can sometime make it go away. Flashbacks, much more difficult. I am on medicine, for depression and the panic, and have additional medicine I can take 'as needed'. That helps sometime. Sometime not. I hope that others will be able to offer better advice to you.
