The Rigor in Science: PTSD a fake? (and lower back pain) by the numbers.

From NYT comments about PTSD  among 9/11 grievers: “I am a board-certified psychiatrist. There is no such thing as posttraumatic stress disorder. People have difficult experiences, and they get upset. There is no disorder. It is a normal response to difficulty. To understand this phenomenon of the PTSD bandwagon, look at the interests of the various people/groups/professions involved. Think for yourself. Question. Be skeptical. Read between the lines. If someone makes a claim, ask for the evidence.”

This is similar to lower back pain disability. Too many.

Not saying its doesnt happen frequently.
