General Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Information
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a type of anxiety disorder characterized by distressing, repetitive thoughts, images or impulses that are intense, absurd, unusual or frightening. The thoughts, which seem alien to the individual but keep popping up in his mind anyway, are often followed by ritualized behaviors that are bizarre and irrational. The rituals, called compulsions, can include a physical action (like repeatedly washing the hands) or a mental act (constantly repeating words or counting). These rituals help reduce the anxiety caused by the irrational thoughts, but they do not provide pleasure to the sufferer. OCD is often called "the disease of doubt" because the sufferer knows his actions are irrational, but he is unsure if his fears are realistic and should be acted upon.

OCD occurs in about one in 40 Americans and strikes men and women of all age groups, social levels and ethnic groups. Most people with OCD experience both obsessions and compulsions, but the disease can also appear with just one or the other. The degree of which the disease affects everyday living varies from person to person, with some barely noticing their condition and others being totally consumed by it.

Possible Causes of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
There is no confirmed cause of OCD, but the condition is thought to be hereditary. If one person in a family has OCD, there is a 25% chance that another immediate family member has the condition as well. Recent studies have also found a connection between repeated cases of strep throat in childhood and the development of OCD. OCD is often connected to depression and other anxiety disorders.

Possible Symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Symptoms of OCD include obsessive and/or compulsive behaviors that cause significant stress or disturb the course of everyday life and are not the result of drug use or medical illness. The compulsions can take up a significant amount of time each day (one hour or more) and provide no gratification, unlike the feeling experienced by compulsive gamblers or shoppers. The person knows his actions are excessive and irrational, but he cannot help himself from performing them.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
OCD sufferers should learn as much as they can about their disease and join a support group for OCD sufferers. Seek out friends and family members who can help learn about and deal with OCD. Reduce anxiety by taking deep breaths, taking a warm bath, listening to relaxing music, taking a walk, meditating or getting a massage. Eliminate caffeine, nicotine and any illegal drugs. Limit alcoholic beverages and avoid taking any unnecessary nonprescription medications.
