Hi everyone. I've recently been diagnosed with (Pure) OCD. I've had it since I was a kid but it was MUCH MUCH more mild. I can think of one big flare up I had as a kid. I'm now 28.
I tried a medication 8 months ago (Zoloft) for social anxiety. It had a negative effect and I've been off it for 6 months. However my health OCD (both physical and mental) has run wild in that time.
Hi everyone. I won't bore you with my whole story right now, but after months of therapy I've recognized as having OCD.
In January I tried Sertraline for social anxiety. It had a paradoxical effect, and ever since I've been plagued with intrusive thoughts of my health, both physically and mentally. I was only on the medication for 2 months, and have been off of it nearly 4.
After barely going to the doctor in 8 years, I went to emergency three different times, and was having fairly bad panic attacks (these have mostly subsided.)
