ok so im driving myself out of my mind! i had a panic attack a few weeks ago and it all seemed like deja vu because i went through the same thing 5 years ago. so i looked up deja vu on the internet and saw it was a symptom of epilepsy, brain tumors and schizophrenia, so now im constantly thinking omigod am i having deja vu, i feel like ive done this before. i wont even leave the house cause im scared that ill have it becasue i feel like im having it 24/7, even right now, or when im on the phone. i do have ocd and my doc says thats what this is. is it possible for someone to obsess about something so much that they belive they have it. it seems the only way i feel better is to come on the internet and look stuff up, which really makes it worse. i also wake up really nervous and thoughts are constantly running through my head, its like i have no control over my life anymore! please help
Deja vu is an interesting phenomenon. What your Internet sources did not mention is that it happens to normal people sometimes. Just because you had a feeling of deja vu doesn't mean you have epilepsy, schizophrenia, etc.
The obsessing over it could just be your OCD. I've got OCD too and I obsess over issues as well as little compulsive things I do. I think it is possible to obsess over something so much that you think it applies to you. How could you not, if you think about it all the time, almost? But I honestly don't think those diseases apply to you. Many people occasionally get deja vu.
i wont even leave the house cause im scared that ill have it becasue i feel like im having it 24/7,
This sounds like panic disorder more than o.c.d. Try and get therapy real soon (I talk from experience on this one) because it sounds like you may be moving into the agoraphobic stage of panic (becoming housebound from it).
