How can OCD be treated ?

I ve been having these thoughts about hurting my girlfriend for about one month now, these thoughts have been causing a lot of anxiety and worry. Also about a couple days ago I read an article on schizophrenia and its gotten me worry that I might have it. I ve been obsessing about it, I was wondering is this OCD or something else? would anybody know what this could possibly be?

My 16 year old son does not speak at school; at weekends and holidays he rarely showers or goes out. He displays OCD going from the bathroom into the kitchen to wash hands / touch the kitchen towel. He refuses to clean up after himself, eg wash dishes he used, his bathroom, his bedroom. I am a single parent, he has no siblings. He did reasonably well GCSEs, but not achieving his potential. He s bright - doing AS Biology, Geography, Chemistry and English Lit. Parents Evening was not so good, his mock results (B, C, D, U) more importantly what his teachers said gave me cause for concern as the lack of interaction with others is affecting his schoolwork seminars + group-work, practical studies.

most nights i seem to have a problem sleeping as my heart seems to be beating too fast and once ive set my mind on it it doesn t stop. to begin with i had panic attacks as i smoke marajuana and im quite a stressed individual but now my chest hurts regularly, and when i try fall asleep at night i ll be woken up all of a sudden struggling for breath. even after a walk or just going out with some friends my heart starts to pound, i m really really worried, if i know i can t die because of it i d be so much more relaxed but i m sure it s something more than a panic attack.

doctor1 MD

my heart is pounding really hard. it s been doing it for about two days now. i have had panic attacks, it doesn t feel like a panic attack. it s kind of scaring me. should i go to the hospital or is it more than likely just a new kind of panic attack that i haven t experienced yet?

I have been having a tightness in my chest and a feeling of heaviness for about 2 hours now. It also feels a little tight in my throat and I feel as though I cannot get as much air in my lunges as usual. This has happened to me before and last time was a few weeks ago when I was on holiday... could this be something to do with the heat? Just before the feeling came on I was eating chocolates - I m wonder if this has affected my sugar levels or blood pressure perhaps. I am trying not to panic as I am wondering is this a panic attack without me realising its one?? Thank you for reading, hope you can help . Sara
