Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: FAQs

1. What is Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition in which a person goes through a recurring cycle of obsessions, compulsions, and unwanted thoughts. It is not psychosis but a kind of anxiety disorder.

Sometimes people with OCD may think their obsessions are valid, while the healthy part of their brain presumes or understands they are unrealistic. However, in both cases, OCD patients find it challenging to hold back their compulsive actions or obsessive thoughts.

For instance, a cleanliness freak who keeps cleaning the window grill or a fussy person who color coordinates the wardrobe. Don't think - it's not a big deal. The condition can go beyond control and become more extreme with time. So, be perceptive of the early signs to get timely OCD treatment in Hyderabad.

2. What is the difference between obsession and compulsions?

Persistent and repetitive thoughts, images, or impulses are caused due to obsessions. This condition can further make a person distressed or anxious. Most of the time, OCD patients even know that the repetitive episodes are unreasonable, yet they fail to resolve the distress by reasoning. As a result, a person makes an effort to overcome the obsessions with compulsions or suppress the obsessions.

Consequently, repetitive behaviors or actions that a person feels compelled to do in response to an obsession are compulsions. If failing to perform, it can leave a person distressed. In severe cases, following the daily routine may even become difficult due to the repetition of actions.

3. What causes OCD?

There is no specific cause of OCD. However, research says environment and genetics can be significant factors. So, if the condition runs in your family, you are more susceptible to this mental disorder. Besides, some life experiences, like exposure to trauma, hospitalization of a family member, loss of a valuable person or thing, fear of disease, neurologic, premenstrual, and postpartum events, can also trigger the condition.

4. How can OCD impact daily life?

Unable to perform certain actions further can lead to great distress for OCD people. One can waste many hours of a day in order to satisfy their obsession or compulsion drives. It eventually can severely impair study, work, and family, and social relationships. If you or your loved ones have OCD, or there are evident OCD symptoms, contact Cadabam's Hospitals for the best OCD treatment in Hyderabad.

5. Can I control OCD symptoms?

Yes, with early diagnosis and proper counseling you can control OCD symptoms and their effects on your life. Sometimes the OCD symptoms may get better with time. However, during depressing or stressful periods, symptoms may get worse. You can recover without treatment if you have mild OCD symptoms. But people with severe conditions must seek out the best OCD treatment in India immediately.
