Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

From your description I suspect presence of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or impulse control disorder.

If problem is causing much difficulty in social-occupational functioning then It is better to get in person assessment by psychiatrist as soon as possible. In most of the problem improved after treatment. So, do not worry and do not attempt to harm self.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
