What tests are needed to diagnose one with post traumatic stress disorder?

I can't stleep at night and little things that happen, or are said bring back traumatizing memories. I panic and break down when I hear certain songs or smells. If I see someone that resembles my father in either shape, height, build, I freeze. I have bad anxiety attacks when any of this happens or if I am in a small closed in area. The pains in my chest cause numbness in my arms and hands and my whole arm has a dull ache. I think I have PTSD but I am not diagnosed.
