Default Is this OCD related?!

Alright..
I've always thought I've had OCD because of something I have been doing for many years.
Let's start with my eyes.
Say if anytime I blink, I'll have to squint them right after, then snap my neck.
I know, it's a weird ritual.
Then there's my arms and my legs.
If I twitch, say... my left thigh twice, I'll have to twitch my right thigh twice. Or my elbow, or knee, or calf, or shoulders, forearms, etc. etc.
Tell me if it has something to do with OCD...

Forgot about my love
Under the bridge downtown

It doesn't really sound like OCD as much as it does OCD tendancies (meaning that it's sorta part of your personality but it really isn't the disorder). I have those, and I just feel like it's better if I make things even (so I do the same thing...if I twitch my thigh, I'll do the same to the other one)

Although, I don't have the disorder. It's really no big deal and you don't need any pills for it! This is a COMMON misconseption...I'm gonna have to edit the sticky in this forum

No I don't think so, it must be tendancies toward OCD or very mild OCD, although I think there's a certain point where it's official called "OCD", and this isn't enough to get pills for or be diagnosed with it.

I think you just have tendancies towards OCD. I do know that autism involves the performance of rituals and has a certain obsessive element to it as well. But either way I think you are just displaying tendancies towards these types of behaviours and don't think it is anything to be concerned about.

But as already stated you have to exhibit other symptoms as well. You typically need to have intrusive obsessive thoughts, time consuming compulsions and show a marked distress towards both of these. All in all the obsessions and compulsions need to interfere with your day to day life before a definite diagnosis of OCD is given.
