Almost everyone knows such seconds: Do I remove the iron plug? Is the front door really closing too? Do I definitely close the stove? And almost everyone has already experienced that, once it does not look enough and check the situation again. Often this is not a matter of distress.
Everyday life out of co
But there are other cases too. Feeling feeling huge internal pressure. You can not help but look 30 or 40 times if the window or the fridge is actually in closing. Everyday life goes out of cohesion because of this ongoing control. "In such circumstances, there is probably an obsessive-mandatory disorder," says the neurologist, Professor Alexander Münchau, who works at Lübeck University. Because there is a variety of obsessive-compulsory disorder.
As well as control restrictions, regulatory constraints are possible – such as enforcement to arrange the equipment on the desk in a specific order. There are also laundry meals. People who have been affected feel anxiety or distress with dirt, bacteria, viruses or physical fluids. "As a result, the hands, the body and, possibly, even the whole flat are washed or cleaned regularly," explained Wolf Hartmann, Managing Director of the German Society of Diseases under Forget.
Deep people have a strong impetus to count certain things, such as street signs, windows or books. "Mandatory thoughts, which are permanently placed on the person in question against his will and of an aggressive nature, can be a problem," explains Christian Schmidt-Kraepelin, a specialist in psychiatry and psychotherapy at LVR-Klinikum Düsseldorf.
2.3 million people suffer
Obsessive-compulsive disorder affects about 2.3 million people. This is derived from the "Adult health study in Germany". What's triggered has not been checked yet again. The disease may be hereditary. "A metabolic disorder in the brain could also play a part," explains Schmidt-Kraepelin. Environmental factors can also contribute to the development of an obsessive-compulsory disorder. "In a family where perfection plays an important role, there is a high probability that one of the members may have an obsessive-compulsory disorder," said Hartmann.
Often, several years before those affected are seeking professional help. Unfortunately, the diagnosis of an obsessive-compulsory disorder is often not done, says the guide for the treatment of OCD, a type of guidance for doctors. Often an obsessive-compulsory disorder is classified incorrectly as ADHD (Deficiency Hyperactivity Disorder).
Negative results are missing
If OCD has been diagnosed correctly, it can be treated with cognitive-behavioral therapy. The patient and the patient with each other analyze the instances where the enforcement occurs and what the trigger is. Later, the patient establishes situations where he / she feels the incentive to do something specific or to think something specific. The therapist now prevents him from empowering him. Therefore, the patient proves that dreadful negative results do not occur.
Relatives are relatives, but other than obsessive-compulsory disorder. These are sudden movements that are very similar, but exaggerated and repetitive (motor tics) or voice (vocal words). They happen under tension and serve no specific purpose. It is estimated that up to 15 percent of primary school students develop temporary tics. This can be expressed in scary or blinking or repetitive sentences.
In many cases, these are quick yet – especially if they receive as little attention as possible. If parents are worried, they can, of course, go to the pediatrician, who can refer you to a specialist. Lightning is all-and-in-the-end, Münchau emphasizes: "There is no reason for drama."
Only when the tick becomes chronic – that is, over a year – and the person affected is suffering, a parent, a child and a doctor can consider therapy. "In serious cases, medicines can be prescribed temporarily," said Münchau, who is also a member of the German Neurology Association.
For some children and young people, there are a number of tuckers everyday. If this is true for more than a year before the age of 18, it's called Tourette's syndrome. Those affected often have problems with their environment often because of their tics. This in turn causes stress that can exacerbate the symptoms. Thus, the German Tourette Society states that early diagnosis and monitoring is important in order to avoid psychological consequences as far as possible.
In the case of obsessive-compulsory disorders as well as thics, relaxation therapy can be used in addition to therapy, such as yoga or autogenic training.
