Dear Andreea,

Thanks for using health care magic.

From the available description it appears that you are either suffering with OCD or developing depression. These are the symptoms of psychiatric disorder that need treatment as soon as possible.

I think you need to see your GP or preferably a psychiatrist after obtaining a referral from your GP. He will ask more details about your problem and may prescribe medication or psychotherapy for treatment.

'Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help".
