Thank you for your query.

I will suggest that you should not unduly worry yourself by taking online screening tests as they are not reliable and shall confuse you unnecessarily. Kindly consult your primary care physician who shall arrange a consultation with the relevant psychiatrist and/or psychologist who shall guide you accordingly.

I hope I have answered your query. Please revert back with more information if you have any.
