Is it PTSD?

So, basically I have this problem, and I believe that it could be PTSD? I don’t want to be that person who self diagnoses over the internet but I just want some input.
So in middle school, I had an incident where I went into shock from blood poisoning and was in the hospital (Infectious disease floor, to ICU after shock set in, and back to the IDF) for about two weeks (With antibiotics for weeks after and multiple checks following).
Since the event, I have had frequent dreams about the event, and sometimes I get anxiety attacks when I dwell on the memories.
The attacks happen frequently, and almost every time I talk about it.
I’m wondering if this could be PTSD?

Also, at times, when the anxiety gets bad enough, the location of the scar on my leg (the source of the infection) stings as does the area on my wrist where I had the IVs.
