Having the feeling of hurting other people, depression. Treatment?

Hi, I am 31 years old female. I am dealing with one strange thought of mine. Sometimes out of sudden I feel like hitting people or throwing things or breaking things or making noise. This happens anytime during day. I have not done that but I am always worried why I feel this and I should not do this in real ever. For an example if I am watching a movie in theater I will feel like throwing something like mobile in my hand . I am not sure how I started feeling like this. But I am many times under pressure because of this. Apart from this I also feel like I am dealing with depression though I have not consulted anyone so far I would like to do that in near future but for above problem please help me. At least I would want to know why do I feel like that. I am married for last 5 years. When me and my husband fight he throws things in anger sometimes , after seeing this twice or thrice I also did that but I do not think its related to my weird thought as these thought comes any time without any prior indication or problem.

Psychiatrist Dr. J. Clive Spiegel's  Response
Your issues are complex. Certainly, if you think you are suffering from depression, you should consult a psychiatrist or mental health practitioner as soon as possible. As for the impulsivity/explosivity, this could be related to several different issues. People with intermittent explosive disorder (an impulse control disorder) often cannot control their mental and physical impulses. Sometimes this is a manifestation of a personality disorder or even posttraumatic stress disorder. It's essential to consult a mental health professional to get the right diagnosis and treatment in this case. Best of luck and do feel better!
