Nervous telling specialist about past domestic violence ... medical issues from it.. Advice?

I would type up your medical

I would type up your medical issues on a piece of paper and refer to it when talking to him, keep it factual, describe the symptoms and what your expectations of treatment are.
Be honest with him, if he asks too many questions, tell him if you would prefer not to go into detail about past traumatic experiences at this time.

I find it helpful to have stuff written down, because if you get anxious during appointments you may forget things you wanted to mention.

Thank you for the advice
