    Because mental checking causes you to loose faith in your ability and increases doubt. OCD will latch onto anything, no matter how minor, to try and convince you that you are a terrible, dangerous person; but in reality, you’ve just had a thought you believe is bad for whatever reason.

    Hi there. First of all, many illicit drugs such as cocaine, MDMA etc, act on the nervous system, particularly by increasing levels of certain neurotransmitters in the nerve synapses or blocking neurotransmitter receptors. Many antidepressants such as SSRIs use a similar mechanism.

    Obsessions can cover almost anything, but it’s difficult to say from a post. Obsessions can indeed be about bodily sensations, but the only way you will be able to distinguish if this is OCD is by seeking the help of a mental health professional.
    Take care
