OCD: Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). Counseling, therapy and medication can all help with OCD. A Psychiatrist would be the best Dr. to see as they specialize in the anxiety disorders. Good luck.
