Hey, I am trying to figure out if I have some kind of anxiety/ocd or some kind of disorder something just ain't right in my head. I often feel anxious and get a lot of intrusive thoughts also i have developed a head jerk movement

There are several different

There are several different disorders that can cause you to have anxious thoughts. If you find yourself worrying excessively about everyday issues such as finances, family members and your job, you could be suffering from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). If you have had some big changes in your life recently that are causing you stress, then you might have what is referred to as an adjustment disorder. If your unwanted thoughts seem farfetched or impossible in some way, for example the idea that you might risk catching AIDS from a doorknob, then you may be suffering from OCD. There are many types of problems that can cause unwanted thoughts and anxiety so the best thing for you to do would be to tell a mental health professional or your doctor what you are going through.

In regards to the head jerking, it could be a type of tic disorder. But you should definitely have that checked out by a physician to ensure that it is not something more serious. Especially if this is not something you have had before.

Best of luck,
