Psychiatrist 's  Response
Many of the above symptoms that you report of- difficulty in sleep, distractability, poor concentration, irritability might be normal or features of an anxiety or mood disorder. Hence a thorough psychiatric evaluation is required which would involve recording of the frequency, severity and duration of symptoms and a current mental state examination. Following this, appropriate medication or psychotherapy can be initiated as appropriate.

Psychiatrist Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms seem to be indicative of an anxiety disorder. Certain types of anxiety disorders like generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) or obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) can cause repeated unwanted and disturbing thoughts.

Since these thoughts seem to be causing you a lot of distress and affecting your normal functioning, you may require treatment. You do need to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you control these unanted thoughts.

Wish you all the best.
