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?

As someone who has been formally diagnosed with PTSD, it sounds like it would be worth your while to see a professional about this. Even if you don't have it, it still sounds like you could use some therapy.

It’s pretty stupid tbh
Although I don’t really swear, I still think it’s dumb. I mean, it’s just a word.

It could be. Try doing some research, and if you feel like it’s serious, see a doctor. Love you < 3

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.
