Salaam my name is kashif and have major depression disorder with severe ocd right now im taking paraxin cr 25 mg from about 7 years but I have depression problem since childhood about 7 or 8 years old but it become severe before my 20th birthday, so I want to tell you that some people use to told me that focus on present do not worry about past or future but what if I have ocd and visual problems about thing right in front of me and my brain often start focusing on minor details like minor spots and dots on various objects that placed anywhere in my room home or outdoors and then I have this urge to focus on them and then slowly these thoughts turn in to fear also I have thoughts in my mind of certain pattern and my mind start repeating that thoughts, so bcoz im using medicine (paraxin cr 25 mg) I can ignore these thoughts if they come and these thoughts increase when I have acidity and intestinal inflammation problems. Sometimes I drop things unintentionally holding in my hand specially through fingertips, I feel lightheaded when try to understand some theory or question and I have hand writing changing problem, all these symptoms gradually appear and increased as I aged after 20th birthday, so im telling you these details because I want to ask you that should I get an mri or ct scan of my brain? Thank you.

Dear, an mri or ct scan may not pick up the reasons for your problems. Please see your doctor and explain your symptoms to him/her. He/she will first examine you and then prescribe any tests that you may need to do. That is the best way to do it. All the best to get well.
Hi kashif, before taking any action I suggest you to talk to a therapist. Get an assessment on stress and regarding your behaviour. Cbt might help you along with mindfulness therapies. But also need to continue medicine. So also get in close with psychiatric.
