Early Signs And Symptoms Of People With OCD?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. To be able to find out your condition, it is first necessary to understand what mental disorder OCD is. OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a psychological disorder that causes the sufferer to have thoughts that focus on a certain thing deeply (obsession) and a strong desire to do it repeatedly (compulsively).
People with OCD are aware of this repetitive behavior and are irritated by it. However, if ignored, he will feel restless and uneasy. Among the daily occurrences that often bother people with OCD are closing doors and locking them repeatedly, making sure the stove has been turned off repeatedly, washing hands repeatedly and can even take hours. A person is said to have OCD if these obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors have occurred every day for at least two consecutive weeks.
Factors that increase a person's risk for developing this condition are:
Genetic factors or heredity A person's personality, where a person who has a perfectionist, neat, and conscientious personality is more likely to experience OCD Experiencing trauma or important events in life Have mental or other personality disorders.
From the story you tell, it is true that the symptoms you show are typical of OCD symptoms. However, we still recommend that you see a psychiatrist because it takes an in-depth history and maybe some tests to confirm your condition. What is clear, your condition has the potential to indicate mental disorders and whatever the cause, you still need a visit to a psychiatrist to get proper treatment. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
