Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
As per Dr. Ajay Nihalani ,OCD specialist in Delhi, who is known for giving many successfull OCD treatment in Delhi area
Obsessive and Compulsive symptoms can be so distressing, that patients may be hesitant to seek treatment for them for fear of embarrassment, but are relieved to hear that it is quite a common illness. Many a times the patient or family is unaware that the persns behaviour is actually is a part of an illness amenable to treatment and thus fail to seek treatment
Obsessions are recurrent intrusive thoughts that cause marked distress and anxiety. “I can’t get the thought out of my head.”
Sometimes these obsessions lead patients to perform compulsive rituals as a way of eliminating the anxiety they cause. Compulsion s can take the form of constant checking, hand-washing, ritualistic counting or gestures, or an unrelenting focus on symmetry and orderliness.
Sometimes OCD patients spend hours performing these compulsion s, while neglecting their jobs, families, and even their own physical health. Like the other anxiety disorders, OCD is treatable with antidepressants and with Counselling.
