Salam, The dirty thoughts that you describe having are a common feature in OCD. Yes OCD is a very much treatable ailment. It needs to be addressed by a combination of both psychotropics and psychotherapy. I am happy to assist further in any way possible if needed.

I am suffering from anxiety and so much fatigue in my legs that I dont want to do anything. I am so much tired and fatigued. Today I was going to shop to buy something and I was so tired that i wanted to sit on road even if cars are passing on road, I dont care about them but somehow I keep on walking. i am not looking for job, even I am graduated in jan but I cant do anything I am dumb student and also I dont deserve to do job. I am constipated for almost a month and passes pallet stool of type 1 and type 2. When I took laxatives my constipation went away but when I stopped taking those it slowly started again. i also have health anxiety and I keep on thinking that this chest pain belongs to heart disease and I am afraid of colon cancer because of constipation. My appetite is also changing. I feel hungry in morning but in evening and night I eat only because its time to eat. I dont know what is going on in my life and when do I get out of this.
Please tell me about chest pain and constipation I am afraid and wanted to cry and very much afraid of it. I googled my symptoms on internet and it told me weird diseases. Help me please I dont to ruin my life
