Can this cause PTSD?

Being told you have a life threatening disease then being told you actually dont have it?

ptsd is very likely from traumatic event(s) that cause flashbacks & nightmares panic & anxiety attacks i believe that substance abuse go with it and intense fear for many years after the event :)

I don't know that it can cause PTSD.  I could see how it would cause depression or anxiety but PTSD is a pretty serious disorder.  Not downplaying that event I am sure it was tough but I can't in all good conscious tell you that it likely caused PTSD.  However I am not a doctor I just have PTSD.  I acquired this beautiful disorder from a lifetime of trauma starting with sexual, mental, and physical abuse leading up to my two deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.  PTSD is treatable and once you find closure for a lot of it the symptoms seem to subside a bit.  Fear causes stress and stress can bring about some pretty severe physical and mental symptoms.  Anyway like I said I am not a doctor but I have met a lot of people with PTSD mostly in the military but a significant amount in the civilian world.  I hope this gets easier for you.
