Hello doctor,

Actually, I am suffering from the symptoms of the obsessive-compulsive disorder. But it is not that I am not having this disease. I am only having these symptoms. The peak symptoms are depression most of the time, constant headache, constant heavy head, irregular heartbeat constant, very less brain power (mostly concentration, focus), increased urination, unwanted repeating thoughts, going deep into thoughts unwantedly, panic attack due to side effect of allopathic medicine sometimes but life threatening, confusions. I am suffering from these symptoms from last two years but the intensity of these symptoms is such high that I am not able to do any work in life like studying or job but I can do the work which requires 5 % concentration from 100 % means less brain usable work like playing mobile games, ludo, sleeping, walking, typing just like now, etc. I want Ayurveda treatment because now I cannot trust allopathic medicines anymore because allopathic medicines show me huge side effects like paralysis type thing on the right side of the body, panic attacks (life threatening), stomach bloating, etc.
