Understanding Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder - The Basics!

Understanding Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder - The Basics!

OCD or obsessive compulsive disorder is a mental condition, which traps people in a cycle of repetitive thoughts that push them to do repetitive behaviors. As the name states, the obsession over certain things compels them to do it over and over again. These actions will only help you feel relieved for a short time and soon the cycle starts back again.

Symptoms of OCD

The symptoms of OCD are classified into two groups, one for the obsessive behavior and the other for compulsive behavior. Some of the common symptoms for these are mentioned below:

Obsessive behaviors

As the name states this means obsessing over certain things, which varies from person to person. Some of the things could be:

  1. Being scared about making mistakes
  2. The fear of being embarrassed in public situations
  3. Constantly being scared about contamination by germs, microbes or dirt
  4. Doubts about sure and simple situations and the need to be constantly reassured about them

Compulsive behaviors

The obsessions usually results in compulsive behaviors, which you may need to perform to reassure and relieve yourself of the anxiety temporarily. Some of these may include:

  1. Trying to constantly arrange things in a certain way and still not being satisfied
  2. Thoughts, words and images being stuck in your head throughout the day that may keep you disturbed and cause to lose sleep
  3. You may even repeat specific words or actions multiple times as a measure of self reassurance.
  4. Hoarding of items, which have no value

Causes of OCD

Biological factors: Certain chemical imbalances in the brain may lead to OCD, which may happen due to hormonal or biological changes. In fact certain infections are also known to trigger OCD in people.

Environmental factors: Certain types of mental trauma have been known to trigger OCD as well, such as

  1. Office, school, college or other work related stresses over a long period of time
  2. The passing away of a near and dear one
  3. Relationship problems
  4. Repressed abuses from earlier in life

Treatments

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is a counseling based therapy where you may be slowly asked to face your fears and overcome them over a period of time.
  • Medications: Diiferent types of medications are used to treat the problems and they vary based on the symptoms. The medications prescribed are sometimes used as stand alone or in combination along with psychotherapy for better results.

I am 19 years old boy. I am an engineering student. I think I have memory loss and poor thinking capacity. What will I do to increase my memory power. And suggest me the food habits too.

First and foremost, there is nothing as memory loss that's happening to you- its just that you are studying things at a more advanced level now and you will have to review your study skills and techniques. You need to understand what you study - do not try to cram. Writing and practicising is very important. Do not get swayed by people's claims that you can score even without studying in college- you have to be regular in your class attendance and self study for better understanding and retention. Check some of your daily habits- wake up in time for the class, have a healthy breakfast every morning - so that you have the energy for concentration in class. Have lots of water and natural fluids -avoid aerated drinks. Have fresh fruits and salads as much as possible - they give you instant energy, are easily digestable and keep you alert. Maintain a notebook where you write about what you did and what you wish to do n the entire day. Have a good sleep for 6-8 hours for relaxation and better focus, alertness and concentration.

I am having head ache and I think it is happening due to stress.Please suggest me something for that.

I am having head ache and I think it is happening due to stress.Please suggest me something for that.
The headache can be stress induced. The best thing is to relax and do few minutes of meditation. If it’s bad than you may take pain killers. In case headache persists more than 3-4 weeks you need to consult pain physician who can guide you with proper diagnosis. Hope this helps.

I have Anxiety but even when I am not stressed out I get anxious out of nowhere and my heart rate goes up. Its only when my beats goes upto 125 that I experience higher diastolic pressure. Also I can not ignore my cbc reports. I compared my last 3 cbcs and found my RBC count have been increasing. I am having difficulty in breathing also. Here I would like to mention that I have forward head bend posture which is very bad and it pain alot in the back. So my low oxygen in blood could be due to bad posture of my neck which is making more rbcs and is a cause of my anxiety also. See if its related doctor, cause I really want to get the right treatment by hitting the root cause. Any reply will be appreciated.

Depression .sometimes I feel very aggressive. Can't choose right and wrong things.

Depression .sometimes I feel very aggressive. Can't choose right and wrong things.
You may have an anger related depression. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good nights sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don't wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Feeling body stress while walking long distance is normal. Feeling mental and physical stress while, standing for long time is also normal. Don't worry.

Hi, conrats. There is no side effect on stopping suddenly. One may be that there is a possibility of weight gain which can be managed by life style modification like physical exercise and by taking appropriate diet. Best of luck.
