    Does anyone here have experiences of EMDR (Eyemovement Desensitization and Reprocessing) as a treatment of PTSD?

    No experience with it but I've heard it can be very helpful.
    Giving it a try? :)

    I've heard that it makes you feel worse in the beginning. Is that true? For how long will that last before it gets better, hours or days?

    I don't know. I could see how it might make you feel worse if it is bringing up a lot of emotional stuff, but I would think it would feel good to have it be brought up and finally released, like what a relief!
