No, it's absolutely not the same. What can be similar is the reason these conditions appear. It may be childhood abuse and neglect. Both physical but emotional abuse and neglect is a huge trauma as well. So the reason may be the same. However the symptoms and personality traits are very different.
As has been already suggested, I highly recommend to read Peter Walker's book and watch videos about cptsd on YouTube.
