Signs and Symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Stella Brown

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a psychological and behavioural disorder in which an individual has certain thoughts over and over (called "fixations") and wants to repeat certain schedules more than once (called "impulses") to such an extent that it causes problems or impedes general functioning. The individual is unable to tolerate either the reflections or the exercises for an extended period of time. Common urges include excessive hand washing, counting objects, and checking to see if an entryway is secured. These activities occur so regularly that they have a negative impact on the individual's day-to-day life, frequently taking up more than an hour every day. Most adults recognise that the behaviours are absurd. The illness is associated with spasms, anxiety, and an increased risk of suicide.
