OCD patients think that things they do is the right way and insist other to do things their way its a psycholigical problem and surgery is not required for this few drugs are helpful with counselling of the patient......

fluoxatine is a good medicine provided that correct doses. consult your doctor for correct doses or change of drug. Surgery is not required how ever correct doses and correct medicine is required if one is not working. Also keep in mind that OCD treatment usually takes many months to get treated.

This is a disorder where the patient repeatedly does the same job repeatedly. My friend's brother had same kind of problem. He used to check the door whether it is locked or not several times in the night. This became very severe and he was awake whole night to check the door. Later he was taken to pshychiatrist and he was started on some medications, now he feels better. Doctor told he need to take the treatment for lifelong

I read some time back about OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). It seems in this people have the habit of doing things again and again- like checking doors, washing hands and all. They keep on doing this many times and are never stop  something like that.

I also have similar kind of problem on long back. I easily come out of that OCD by insisting my mind by telling not to think about the completed action. So try this and u will definitely come out of this situation with in short period.

I think youre nuts. Is it not peculiar that checking doors now and then, 100 times washing the floor is something people do it intentionally

I have severe obsessive compulsive disorder. I take daily quetiapine 1200mg, clomipramine 200mg, pregabalin 600mg. I would prefer an increase in medication. Do you think that is feasible?

I have been having heart palpitations at night for the past 2 weeks that wake me up out of my sleep. For the past 2 weeks I have been living on no sleep because of this and it is miserable. I have had anxiety issues in the past, but I really feel as though this is different. When sleeping I kind of feel like I "forget to breathe" and get a heart palpitation just when I'm about to doze off. I had heart palpitations 2 years ago and went to a cardiologist in which the doctor did many tests and found nothing abnormal. I have competed in athletics my entire life and am a seemingly healthy 23 year old female.

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
